I spent my morning walking around the community talking to the parents and caregivers of my students.

I've never done that before. I've only ever really been from the school to the store, to my home, and they're all down one street.

It was eye-opening.



I had never known living conditions for people in the community were that bad. I've been here four months and I really had no clue. I expected a level of neglect, because I'm not blind, but this was worse than even those meagre expectations. In several of the houses it was akin to slumming in a derelict building... after the explosives have been set.

It's heartbreaking.
