Two things that Halvar's mentees really liked


Halvar Mathiesen posted this....maybe other mentors could help their mentees with these 2 small gifts (for academic purposes !)


1.       I bought them each a simple cheap head-lamp (those torches that strap onto your head; about R100 at Dischem near St Marys)… apparently there have been lots of power cuts in Alex; and I think a lot of these kids live in homes where there is only one light bulb… so studying at night means keeping everyone else awake…

2.       I bought them a stock of sponge ear-plugs (cheap, at the big Dischem near St Marys): Alex can be pretty noise, and some houses are very close to neighbouring houses…
