Well, this morning started with a torrential downpour after breakfast – lovely African weather! As a result, we set off slightly later than usual, but still managed to arrive on time in the now blazing heat.
Being in the room we are meant to be in and having more space is so much better. Both morning and afternoon sessions went really well and the children are continually progressing. It is so nice to see that they are learning and recalling knowledge from previous days.
This morning we set up a series of stations with fun activities – they were so happy whilst playing twister, making bracelets, completing jigsaws and colouring by numbers – tasks that we consider so basic at home.
The younger afternoon group never stopped smiling whilst singing the ‘hokey cokey’ and ‘twinkle twinkle little star’.
After we’d finished the sessions, the Acholi ladies came down to show us their handmade items which they sell as their form of income. It was very humbling to see the happiness on their faces as we purchased their items. Knowing that we’ve made a difference and helped them out financially is truly heartwarming
