Our Africa tour company (Africa Adventure Company) recommended that we bring some basic school supplies to give to one of the local schools. When we first arrived at the Ololaimutia Primary School near the Masai Mara Reserve, the boys that met us were a little reserved in their greeting. But they quickly lost their shyness once I started handing out some of the pens I had brought. It was amazing – and humbling – how eagerly they accepted such a small and trivial item as a pen, mumbling a quick thank you as they quickly grabbed hold of it. I never expected that the few dollars I spent on packets of pens at Costco would have such a large impact.
