Rain School

Written and illustrated by James Rumford

For many Americans, the idea that schools are only temporary places of learning is a novel one. Where do teachers put all the desks, chairs and books? In Africa, where building materials come directly from the land, the rebuilding of the school is part of the education. After all it's the lessons learned that needs to last a lifetime, not the building in which the lesson was learned.
