Time for School....

Rock Hill Village- It is a sight you would never forget if you get a chance to see it. Women and children pounding rocks into gravel to sell so that they can have a bowl of rice at the end of the day. And that is if they sell it that day. Men are working there too to try and provide for their families. It takes them 7 hours to make 40cents. Unbelievable!
We toured the one school that was there. If you can call it that. The roof leaks and is falling in. The benches that they write at are torn up so bad that the kids cannot write at them. The Black board is a a chunk of cardboard with black board paint painted on it to have some sort of semblance of a bl. board.
Can you imagine if your child attended this school? That is if you can afford to send them there. I am posting some pictures for you to see. (will post pics when I get home) Compare the kindergarten room to the one your or even my child will attend this year. This community needs our help. AoH will be posting soon on how you can help make a difference. These children need to have an education and a future not a pile of rocks as their only means to survive.
