A message from Lelo
I managed to get a few minutes on the telephone with Lelo tonight, and she wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who’s pledged so far!
She gasped when I told her how much we’d raised…
But gasped again when I told her how much we still need!
She’s a little shy and the line wasn’t great. But here’s her message for YOU:
“Hello. My name is Nomvuselelo. I want to say thank you to everyone.”
Georgie: What else do you want to say?
“Okay, I really want to go to that school.”
Why do you want to go to that school?
“For good education.”
What can you do with a good education?
“To fulfil my dreams!”
What are your dreams Lelo?
“To become a doctor or a teacher.”
Why do you want to be a doctor or a teacher?
“So I could help educate other children and treat the sick.”
What do you think it would do for your family if you got a good job?
“Build a house…”
You would build a house for your family?
When you have children, would you send them to school as well?
“Yea, I will!”
So, if you have a daughter, do you want her to be able to go to school?
And if you were a doctor, you think that will help?
So people must keep pledging?
Two more weeks…and hopefully we will reach our target!
Okay, say goodbye.
