New uniforms for kids at Macalaco School
At last year’s opening ceremony for the classrooms we built at Macalaco School, I felt sad to see how old the kid’s school uniforms were. Obviously washed with care by their mothers, they were spotlessly clean but the white shirts looked old and grey and many kids were wearing non-uniform shorts or skirts.
In a great example of how far money can go in East Timor, Spend it Well just bought 3 shirts and 2 skirts or shorts for each of the 100 children – for a grand total of $1,100 (about the price to outfit one Aussie child at a private school). Carefully packaged by Agostinho for each child, they were presented to the children recently. I love the photos (the little boy did get a better sized shirt!)
