How much does it take to provide cold, clean water
to two and a half thousand students?
Take an old class rooms and worn out desks
And clean them up
Add a bit of sanity,
Fix broken windows
And cover them with shades
Take an old library
And put books
and tables and chairs
Worn out, lifeless corridors
And fill them with light
Clean up rusting fans
How much does it take to give a little bit of TLC when you are sick and wanting for care
And a spoonfull of sugar to help your medicine go down.
Add a conference room
And a lab
With a schedule
A room to freshen up your soul
And leave your children in peace, while you teach mine
What does it take to bring a child out of darkness
Into the light and put a smile on her face…
