  Like Well trained seals(just not as cute!)

Like a couple of suckers we took pens,pencils ,books,etc,etc AND GAVE MONEY TOO!
DON'T YOU BE FOOLED,yes this is a poor nation but the more we do the less they will try to help themselves.Basically the trick is the money goes straight into the teachers pockets and not into the school itself

Unique Suggestions: Definately do not give any money
