Project Lesotho.

Project Lesotho.

My English teacher has a good friend from Lesotho. This friend is a teacher as well, in her country, Lesotho. Lesotho is a very poor country, therefore the school she works in does not have so much resources as for instance computers, internet etc. In the school they only have to or three computers all together. Moreover they do not have electricity in the school, therefore the teacher must take the computers home and charge them there and bring them to school the next day. Unfortunately they do not have internet either. Therefore our class decided that we wanted to raise money for this school. The money we raise is going to pay for internet to the school. It is a really exciting project, because if we succeed with raising all the money we need, we might get to for instance skype with the students in Lesotho. The cultural difference between Norway and Lesotho is huge; therefore we have much to learn from each other. Moreover three students from “international English, Sadvika vgs” get the chance to travel to Lesotho in approximately April 2012. I am of course going to apply to be one of the tree students, because I can’t miss out on this one time opportunity. I am sure it is going to be an amazing trip for the lucky three students who get to go!
