Rural Schools Letter of Thanks (1)

Dear Al,
My name is Heather Taylor and I was one of the math teachers who went
to South Africa for a month this summer with Teachers Without Borders.
On the day we left, we attended the dedication ceremony at Mdlangaswa
High School for their computer lab. It was amazing to be there and to
see how excited the students and teachers were. They kept repeating
how fortunate they were, and it was wonderful to witness their
excitement. I have a sister who graduated from Cornell Law School and
I was so proud that she is affiliated with a school that is making a
difference to kids and teachers in South Africa. This is how we as
Americans can make the world a better place. Those computers have
given a rural South African school hope. Hope for a better education
for their students. It has made them feel important–it has made them
feel special. Although they might not have much, they are now
priveledged with a beautiful computer lab, and they are ready and
willing to make the most of it. Thank you for making this a reality
for these students. You have changed their lives.
Aloha, Heather Taylor
