I don’t remember classes in Maths being enjoyable!

9th August 2018: These girls look to be having fun in their Maths class. Not surprising as we have a wonderful teacher. Maths is everyone's worst subject and with poorly trained, underpaid teachers, in classes nearing 100, it's not surprising. Lets hope they had lots of fun and food...

Netball, after a fashion

Lusungu

A little break

5th April 2018: This may be a little downtime but the washing still has to be done. We appear not to have a clothesline or clothes pegs, but they will do what they do at home: on the bushes. Looks like they have been cleaning and mopping as...
