A Hard Day’s Work that ended in song and dance!

This video is sure to make you laugh!! After a hard day on site we had a very fun filled evening with The Zwelihle Choral Project, who have the ability to dissolve all inhibitions with their amazing music making. ENJOY……..

Apologies if you had problems viewing the video earlier. All sorted now.

Day 2 on Site and Kids’ Camp

IMG_2208On 13th the first team of children arrived and we all were very excited to see them. We introduced ourselves to each other. There were four teams with 5 children in each divided age wise. There were 4 sessions with the children of English, art, math, and outdoor games. The children were very excited to play games and they even taught us the games they usually play. In the English session the children wrote letters thanking the team for taking care of them and for our support with building a library. The children loved having piggybacks as well as just being carried around by us. To finish off the kids camp, we decided to organize a giant relay and dodge ball game where everyone joined in. It was a huge success and a life changing experience. Click READ MORE to see a video of our day.

Day 1 on site

Today was an incredibly productive day, and included lifting around 400 bricks and painting two layers in a classroom. We also made cement (which is harder than it sounds!), and built the wall to about 1 foot high. There is no doubt that everybody in the team will be quite soar tomorrow, and not ready to wake up at 6:30am.

Day 1 of our work at the project was pretty good, tiring but I had a lot of fun brick-laying, moving bricks, cementing……… and playing football.

The first day of our project was just as wonderful. It took some effort, but working in a team, painting, brick laying and cementing was great fun.
