We woke up to the most delicious porridge any of us had ever tried, even the non-porridge eaters like Maddy tried some and no one was disappointed! We attended the primary school assembly where they sang and praised God in a really inspiring way, and the other group of Guides performed a version of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf’. John then took us on a tour of the village, showing us around the medical centre, primary and high school as well as the church.
Before lunch we began to plan our development projects where we will be visiting families in Kabubbu and asking them questions about their life so that we can use a £100 budget to improve their lives. We may be able to assist with buying food, medicine, mosquito nets or supplies that will help the family with their plans. The choice is ours based on what we agree are the priorities to support the family in a sustainable way.
Afterwards we taught lessons at the primary school about communication, focusing on the post and letter-writing. We played hangman and other games to help with learning spelling.
We had a great first day at the project and we’re overwhelmed by our first impressions of Kabubbu.
