Day 3 – Painting

Before we came back to Uganda we thought that the classroom may need a fresh lick of paint and something done to help brighten the room up further. We want our catch-up classes to be a place where the children can come and feel inspired and motivated to work.

Painting on rough plastered, wavy walls with objects in the way is not easy but we appreciate the work all the guys put in.

Today was also Megan’s birthday so one of our teachers, Afisha, surprised Megan with a cake that we shared amongst the painting team and our neighbours in Katanga too.

The children in our classes certainly appreciated the colour, numbers and letters on the wall and the teachers appreciated a darker blue on the wall to shield shoe, scuff marks a little bit more.
