We visited an African village on our most recent trip and noticed several children not in school. One of our team members asked the local teacher why the kids weren’t in class. “We don’t have any books or chalk, so I can’t teach,” answered the teacher. Thankfully, we had brought a bunch of pens, pencils and a box of chalk from home. He gave the bag to the teacher and the teacher was quite happy to receive and start using the supplies.
