Every day at noon, the pre-school children tumble out of their classrooms, wash their hands, and sit down for what might be their only hot meal of the day. I hardly need to wear a watch anymore because when I hear the children making a lot of noise, I know it is noon. The meals are quite simple, carbohydrates and protein, generally rice or semp (corn kernels off the cob, dried up, and cooked) and beans. Potatoes are a treat for the children.

I eat three sqare meals a day, but each time i eat, i can't help but to think about all the people in Africa starveing. Then i think about you, and all the hard work you do in Africa, and it gives me comfort.
