When I first started teaching English in the Compassion child development program a few months ago, we met in this little bamboo building. When I say bamboo, I’m not kidding—the floors, walls and house posts were all made of bamboo. Not the roof, though. That was made of leaves.
The little bamboo structure served its purpose well.
English was taught.
Fun was had.
It had its problems however.
The roof leaked when it rained and there were big holes in the floor, so we had to be careful where we stepped and try not to drop things on the floor which would end up on the ground. And of course, any activity involving jumping was out of the question.
So I was happy when after absolutely zero complaining on my part, it was decided to move the Saturday classes into a nice wooden house in the village until they can build a new building for the program.
Have you ever thought of a solid floor under your feet as a luxury?
English is still taught.
Fun is still had.
Change is good.
Things just get better and better.
