I entered a competition at school set by the British Council and Teachers TV. The prize was for 4 teachers to visit their link school anywhere in the world, and be filmed for a programme for Teachers TV.
Our link school is in Kenya. We are going in July, and I have just found out from the film makers that Moses, the deputy head of the school and our main contact, is going to have us all for tea one night. He lives in a hut with his parents, and no electricity. He is going to kill a lamb for us.
Its going to be wonderful, but I am so worried that Moses is going to be hospitable at a very great expense to himself. We cant just bung him some money, and say "here, buy youself another lamb".
Does anyone have any suggestions for sensitive gifts that wouldnt leave Moses out of pocket? (I have already bought a wind up radio and torch for him, but suspect this wont compensate for livestock)
