The love of reading can open many doors and establish relationships that stretch across oceans. That is precisely what has happened between children at a rural school in Randfontein and kids at Tuxedo Park School in New York.
The US kids recently put together a project to raise funds to buy books for children at Mamblomong School and the nearby Elandsvlei Drop-in Centre. (Read the story here.)
Almost 250 books were delivered and already they are opening new worlds to the local kids.
In this post we publish some of the letters written to the children at Tuxedo Park School by the youngsters from Randfontein.
