To our donors:

Our spring break pro bono trip to work with the Legal Resources Centre in Grahamstown, South Africa was incredible! We spent three days in the former Transkei, a very rural region and one of the poorest in South Africa. The schools there face many challenges, including transportation for students and teachers (and us!), and access to adequate facilities both within the classrooms and in the greater school (for example, schools struggle to have enough chairs and desks to accommodate all students, meaning as many as 100 students may be crowded into one room; many schools have too few toilets, and those they do have are often poorly maintained; a lack of adequate security often forces schools to improvise when it comes to storage of food and supplies). We specifically explored the issue of teacher absenteeism through interviews at 12 schools. Due to a variety of factors, many teachers are absent from their classes for an unacceptable number of days each year. This impacts students' ability to learn and means that classes are unable to complete the planned curriculum, ultimately interfering with the students' right to education.

The trip has had a huge impact on all of us. We thank you for contributions in making this trip possible.
