Youngstown State University Integrated Math Education major Ashlee Dawson describes what she saw and heard during a trip to South Africa as part of Project Learning Around the World. A group of students and faculty from Youngstown State visit a number of schools in South Africa each year and bring supplies and smiles to the children there. The group is led by Dr. Audrey Ellenwood, professor at Youngstown State. Watch 2014 video above!

80% of the children in adopted schools have AIDS, TB and many have lost one or both parents to AIDS. Many of the children were homeless. Food is limited and the villagers often cook one pot of porridge for the children, which might be their only meal of the day.
School supplies were also very limited and five children would share one pencil. Each year individuals associated with Project Learning Around the World gather and hand deliver school supplies, reading books, or small equipment to various South African township schools.
