Care Packages

If you want to send something for me or for my students here I won’t complain. I thought I might be able to give some suggestions:

 glue sticks

Index cards




photographs of school life in the US

pencils and/or pens

powdered drink mixes (crystal lite, etc… the water here is not all that tasty)

US Stamps… so I can send YOU something in return!!!

Thank you!

    Hi! I work at an engineering office and we are planning to do a service project activity for our Christmas contribution. I just wanted to check in with you, and let you know that we’ll be sending care packages soon! About how much of the listed items would you need?

    Hi Phoebe,

    Abdullah is visiting with us tonight and he pulled up your website for us. Liam, Abdullah and I enjoyed looking at all of your photos. So many experiences and exciting places…I am envious! I will try to put together a care package with some of the things you need. I will also look around for some old glasses that we may have laying around. Enjoy the rest of your time in Africa! Happy New Year!

    Cathy S.

    PS – I am sure Liam will be sending “his favorite teacher” an e-mail soon!
