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.
