We are continuing to raise money for the Limpopo Writing Project. Dr. Leketi Makalela hopes to have the second institute in May, 2010. During winter break, one of our teachers from the first Limpopo Writing Project came and stayed with us. Mashaba Mashala is in the US on a Fulbright Fellowship studying for her Master's Degree at Iowa State.
We invited Mashaba to spend the holidays with us and we had a wonderful time together. We talked about education in South Africa and how important the Limpopo Writing Project is for children in Northern South Africa. The San Antonio Writing Project had a reception for Mashaba and we experienced a magical evening as she told us about her life and her students.
Mashaba will be in the US until May 2010. We all support her and hope to see her again soon.
