My friends learned about South African history and culture through folklore, dancing, drumming, and wearing traditional clothing. Each kid created a poster about themselves to give to an African school PC pal. Each of my friends got a book called Peaceful Protest: The Life of Nelson Mandela.
Donations were collected and a laptop computer was purchased for a South African school that did not have any computers. During my trip to South Africa, I gave the PC, posters, some clothes and cash to the school in the capitol city of Pretoria. I got a chance to participate in class lessons and play ‘football’ at recess.
