The first is to help us to start to buy land so that we can build our own little centre - the first step in an exciting journey for Paleng.
The second is to help us to try to somehow put some of our homegrown stories into print, and to distribute them to the primary schools in our valley (and beyond if we can!) This will give children who are learning to read, books to read in Sesotho that were written in their own valley, imagine that! We will be putting our stories up on this web-site, but you can also see them at www.africanstorybook.org.
We also want to buy some more appropriate books, like these you see here, those developed in Africa for African children in English, focusing on emerging literacy (those little people and others of course, just learning to read).
Thank you Rahula for helping us make our dreams come true, your donation will really make a difference to early literacy development here.
