Soy Ryan y
tengo 6 años
Esto es África y...
¿Qué puedo hacer yo?
Eso está muy bien, Ryan,
pero 70 $ es mucho dinero
Haré trabajos extra
Todavía
tengo muy
poco
¡Nosostros te ayudaremos!
¡Por fin! Ya tengo los 70$ para el pozo
Ryan, una bomba manual cuesta 70$, pero
hacer el pozo cuesta 2000$.
No importa. Conseguiré más dinero.
... y el pozo fue construido
... un intercambio de cartas con el
Colegio de Angolo,
en Uganda
Querido Ryan, mi nombre es Akana Jimmy.
Tengo 8 años y me gusta el fútbol.
Nuestra casa está hecha de paja y ramas.
¿Cómo es América?
Tu amigo, Akana Jimmy.
Querido Jimmy, debe ser chulo vivir en una
cabaña.
Yo también tengo 8 años.
¿Bebes de mi pozo todos los días?
¿Cuál es tu asignatura favorita?
Me van a llevar a Uganda cuando tenga 12 años.
Mi casa está hecha de ladrillos.
Escribe pronto.
Tu amigo, Ryan.
