A different life
Sara Huntingdon works for a children’s organization in Africa. Every day, she writes her blog for an online news website.
Wednesday, July 25
Every morning, I get up at six o’clock and go to the camp. One thousand families live there. They don’t have much food or water.
I sometimes work in the school. It is in a big, old house near the camp, and it is open to children from five to twelve years old. It’s usually hot inside. I teach classes for five hours.
When the children get to school at a quarter after seven, they go into the house and meet their friends. They talk and play games. They like games! Then we start classes at a quarter after eight. I teach English. The children can speak English, but they can’t write in English. They have a lot of questions. They have questions about my life in the United States – and about my boyfriend! I cook some food, and they eat it before they go home. They go back to their families in the afternoon, and I send email to my family and my boyfriend. I eat dinner, and I go to bed at about ten o’clock.
