me is the lack of furniture in our schools. I remember, ‘Narrative Changers’
will bombard me, tag me with all manner of pictures of children sitting on the
ground. So, I have decided to solicit for help to donate some furniture. I
asked around and got friends who have given me 200 dull desks to give to the
region. I’m hopeful that we will look for schools that really need them”, she
