CBO Visit

 

The children are practicing their alphabet and numbers.




The first room of the two room library.  There were books in both English and Chichewa.


Yesterday's CBO visit went very well.  It is amazing the difference between the first CBO and the second.  The first had just a tiny building with a grass roof, this one has a large 3 room building, metal roof, and a library.  Both CBO's service 5 surrounding villages.  This one also works with orphans and those with HIV. 

This time we taught them the song "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes", and played lots of games.  The kids had already showed us that they knew the parts of the body, so it was fun to teach them a song to help them remember.  They caught on very quickly.
 


Jump the River



Before leaving we presented one of the Village Chiefs with
two soccer balls, and promised to return with water filters from Ms. Uthe's class.  Then as we left the teachers sang to us as we drove away.  What a great day!  Looking forward to bringing the water filters next week!
