Kids show off their spelling at Chilileka Basic School in Zambia

I'm on an emotional high after visiting the Chilileka Basic School in rural Zambia yesterday. I'll write and post more pictures soon, but I thought I'd start by sharing this photo of spelling practice.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        I love this weekly feature! Haha, it's also pleasing that the kid in the photo is a good speller!

        What an amazing experience to be able to meet the children who have benefitted from the Passports with Purpose fundraiser!

        They were all great spellers, and seemed to be both nervous and excited to show off what they could do.

        One of the youngest boys (he coudn't have been older than 6) struggled with the word "bicycle," and I just wanted to go up and wrap my arms around him - adorable.

        Inspirational. I just noticed the kid in the picture is holding the word 'community ' over his head... So true, we should all try to help is some way. So, thank you.
        After seeing much of the world on our rtw trip, we realize now we need to get involved somehow to help to level the playing field... Education is the answer in my opinion. Thank you again
