When you're wondering how to build a bridge between people
A few months ago my husband, Xylon, took 5 or so books that we both read once but aren’t likely to read again to a second hand bookseller. He came back about an hour later and said, “It was a waste of my time. The guy wasn’t interested.”
Learn Xhosa (it’s the African language most widely spoken in the town I live in).
Go to the government school less than a KM from our house and listen to them. Hear what problems they have, what solutions they have and see if we can help them. Basically, find out what fishing rods they might need.
Help a child that Xylon has become friends with in his final year of school hopefully improve his final marks and find direction.
I’ve started a running programme to run faster so I can try run with my running club more and practice some of the Xhosa I’m learning.
