Looking for the positives

The start of  a new term is always one of mixed emotions. The excitement of new classes, the blank page – the new stationery mixed with the wistfulness of missing family and the slower days of Summer.
For many children school is the one place that they have security. Following our visit to Kakuma refugee camp the first classroom from our fundraising is now built and will open shortly.

Hopefully this is the first of many – we will keep you posted. I’ve been doing some editing today and looking back over my Kakuma photos – these are a few that I haven’t shared before.

This collage is of a workers’ cooperative where the people there were  making bags both from the amazing material you can see here and also the plastic UNCR heavy duty plastic sacking.
The resilience we saw there was second to none. The people were welcoming, friendly, determined, parents and teachers just like us who only wanted the best for their families and children.
Enjoy your first days of term and remember Education  can make such a difference to peoples’ lives x
