A future for art programs at the Mama Bakhita

This year, like every year, one of the highlights of my Africa trip was the time spent making art with the children with disabilities at the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Home. They are energized and empowered by creating art, and in the process, they exercise important muscle skills. 

The Mama Bakhita changes leadership every few years. While I was there I was fortunate to spend time with the new director, Sr. Magdelena Sitondo, and was so impressed. Not only is she very smart and caring, but she also instinctively understood and took a keen interest in my creative work with the children. It has always been my dream to make art therapy a permanent part of their program, and with Sr. Magdelena at the helm, it may soon be possible!
