Back with the children

It is great to be back with the children. We've been painting, working with clay, and doing some drumming & dancing!

The pleasure they take in these open-ended, creative activities is always gratifying to see. Their tenacity, despite disabilities which make control of motor skills extremely difficult, humbles and inspires me. Here's Jonathan, who was born with cerebral palsy and is severely spastic. Focusing with tremendous power on manipulating the clay, his determination never flags; every time I ask him if he’s getting tired, he says no. 

The Mama Bakhita has a new director, Sister Magdalena Sitondo, who realizes that the children benefit greatly from activities that are  creative, straightforward, focused and fun, like these.
