We’ve only been here two days but have already visited four partner schools and one new one. It’s exciting to be able to visit schools and just interact with the students and staff. Especially rewarding to see the supplies being used. We’ve been splitting into groups and helping with various activities like reading to kids, participating in sports and games, coloring, painting, weaving, drawing, pottery and more. One of my favorite was the time we spent coloring with kids who were now able to use our crayons as part of their regular school lessons.
Of course we had a reminder of how much work still needs to be done when we visited Kibiribiri Primary School and saw children writing their lessons in the dirt with sticks because they couldn’t afford paper for the children. Heading to Pallisa, a more rural area in Eastern Uganda, in a few hours.
