As part of our humanitarian efforts in Africa we are doing many small things to help the needy. Recently we were able to help a boy and a girl who were denied admission to school because their parents could not pay the school fees.
After listening to the grievances of their parents, Bhante sent a representative to meet the headmaster of the school. He got the necessary information with verification that children haven’t paid the fees. Within a few days the school fees were paid for one year until the end of 2011. The children are now back in school and we wish them success with their studies. I am thankful to my assistant in Kenya, Mr. Kumara, who walked four kilometers to visit the rural school and pay the fees.
