Hey friends and family,
Today was our first day of teaching! Everyone really enjoyed sharing their knowledge with the kids and loved getting to know them. The youngest being only 3 and adorable! Some being as old as 20. They are all so pleased to meet us and eager to learn. We've had lots of fun and games, the weather has been great. The language barrier is interesting but the translaters are helping a lot. Can't wait to come back to the school tomorrow and continue with teaching. The pace the children are learning at is very impressive.
Interesting to hear the background stories from some of the kids, one in particular stood out; a boy named Mandela who has been part of the programme for a while and it was delightful to hear his mum had qualified as a cook thanks to WAR. Their old lifestyle has been changed for the better over the last year.
The women working for the programme provided us with a fantastic lunch! Hope everything is alright at home everyone sends their love.
P.S Everyone's going to do an Angelina Jolie by the end of the week!
Lots of love and hugs from Issie, Rosie and Cammie x
