The Feeding centre and home visits

Moni! Today was a very different but emotional day. To start we split into two groups - one to remain and work on site and the other group to do to the feeding centre that TGS worked on last year. 
On site today we finished the second classroom floor as well as working with Yung to paint designs in the classroom walls. It's starting to look really nice and colourful now! 
At the feeding centre, we played with all the kids that had gathered there, and helped with serving up the staple food of nsima to the 2 - 5 year olds. We found it shocking that it could have been their only meal of the day, but it was amazing to see the work that the caregivers at the feeding centre do. 
To finish the day we went to visit some of the locals' homes and got to ask them questions about their lives. To get back to the compound we went on a walk of the local areas with some of the children. 
For tea we had our favourite - spaghetti bolognese! 
With the knowledge of egg for breakfast tomorrow, we shall say goodnight and see you tomorrow! :)
