'M'e Masechabe and 'M'e Malisema:
'M'e Jimi, Ntate Lereko and Eric:
Some of the appreciative PCVs:
'M'e Malitaba, Ntate Majara, Eric, Ntate Lereko and 'M'e Eunicia:
PCVs and staff:
The PCVs had brought hand-written cards with expressions of thanks to all the staff from PCVs all over Lesotho. Here, they are handing them out.
As the staff began to read the cards, occasionally out loud, I could see that they were genuinely moved.
Seated here are 'M'e Selloane, Ntate Mohale and 'M'e Jimi, with PCVs standing in the background.
The seated staff here are Deepak, 'M'e Jeanette, and 'M'e Khubelu:
Here, seated on the left, are Jim and 'M'e Mamakola. Standing are Ntate Tsatsi and their fearless leader, Kathy. Behind her is a PCV. Seated on the right is Deepak.
One PCV, in particular, seems to know when a camera is pointed her way...
Snacks and sodas were brought in, and the party began. Seated here are 'M'e Itumaleng, 'M'e Selloane and Ntate Mohale.
And expressions of appreciation.
Here, my wife and one of the PCVs are focused on a task of immense significance.
They were, of course, cutting the cake!
Now this is a party!
Here are 'M'e Mamakheta and Ntate Bernard.
Kathy, of course, received her share of cards.
Aw, you guys!
As I said, I have seen first hand how hard-working and dedicated the Peace Corps Lesotho staff are. And how kind and caring. So to see their volunteers take the time to do this was truly special.
