A School Playground Sign in Zambia

Posted on | May 18, 2012 | 4 Comments




I have two sons: one 12, one 16. If I had the time I’m sure I could write for a day on the differences between life for a tween/teen in Zambia versus the life my children are lucky to live in Seattle. Instead of all those words, the top picture, of a playground sign in an all-boys secondary (middle + high) school in Mazabuka, Zambia is a powerful reminder that teenage risks in Zambia can carry a significantly higher cost.

My trip to Zambia to visit the libraries built by Passports with Purpose in 2011 is sponsored by Expedia.

    Thank you for sharing this post…quite a lot to think about with just a simple sign in a playground. And thank you even more for helping to make those libraries a reality. Very inspiring!
