Candy Canes Arrive at NHA Kabala School

James enters the classroom and warms the students up with some clapping and singing as they prepare to receive their gifts of candy canes & pencils.

Alie Jalloh gets more students ready for the big moment. How different from 1st world countries and how moving to see children thrilled to receive a candy cane and pencil. This is a very exciting day for them, the day the candy canes come. It is a rare treat and the children are anxious.


A teacher, Alie and James line the kids up outside. See tomorrow's post on this blog to view the photos of the children as they receive their treats. Have a wonderful day; See ya tomorrow...
