Today we visited Bunga Hill Primary School and Light High School - the schools where most of our kids attend. We have had a relationship with Bunga Hill since the beginning of Kids First back in 2008. As our kids have grown up we have searched for high schools that can support their needs, and in the past 2 years most of our high school kids have moved to Light High.
Visiting these two schools was, as it has been previously, humbling and emotional. Humbling to see such dedicated teachers working under difficult conditions for kids that they really care about. Emotional because these are kids we love, some we have known for 7 years. We are so proud of what they are achieving, and when you see the environments they live and study in, it is just amazing.
Words can't do this day justice. Photos can't either, but hopefully they will give you a bit more insight into our sponsorship, the education our kids get, and the daily challenges they face in areas that you and I wouldn't even consider.
I took a million photos today. Well, nearly. So that you don't get photo overkill, I'll put up the primary school photos today, high school photos tomorrow. Yeah, there are lots, but more than just documenting the fact we visited the school, I really wanted to try and give you a feel for what it is like there.
Here at Kids First we all have something to say, so this blog will be updated by members of our team as our work progresses to keep all of you in the loop!
