Our treasurer Ron Moulton informs this blogger that people of all ages have been putting Village Help for South Sudan on their birthday lists. Most notably, some students of Brookwood School have generously given up receiving toys and games on their birthdays to give boys and girls their age in Wunlang a chance at education.

Many boys and girls are moved when they hear that kids their age don't have a school building, a pencil, or decent clothes for school. This is a great teaching moment for parents. And children, by giving up a little so other children can have something precious, can teach us also.

Painted Brick

The Brookwood School has joined our Village to Village program! This private elementary school in Manchester, MA, has supported the Wunlang School Project in several ways over the past few months. The students have raised funds for Wunlang by collecting and selling used cell phones; by selling cookbooks; and by featuring the Wunlang School in their 8th grade service dinner. At the dinner, the students gave oral reports on the history and current situation in Sudan. Franco Majok presented a brief personal history and a summary of the Wunlang School Project. Students presented a display and sale of bricks they had painted to help celebrate and show solidarity for the people of the village of Wunlang who made more than 150,000 bricks to be used to build their school later this year. Thank you Brookwood!
