Yesterday we went to London to see the poppies at the Tower; we were not alone …….

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly

If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields

The secondary school students pay back the community……

nemafoundation:

Our secondary school students are back for holidays, though it’s not all brincadera (fun). Marieke, my predecessor, started the community service programme for all of the Nema scholars. It’s a 4 day programme, one day of training in a health related subject and 3 days of community projects…

Great blog showing your good work….
