At the Kirkos center we had two days of fun! The first day we did North American dancing and Ethiopian dancing – the second day we had a carnival which included an UNO tournament, face painting ( although some wanted it on their arms), a craft table, a puzzle table… The kids LOVED this! -Deborah Northcott, Expedition Team Leader
The Expedition Team spent a few days out at the Education Support Center in Gindo in rural Ethiopia. It was a wonderful few days full of activities! The students and volunteers made crafts together, and our Expedition Team taught the students about the environment, and about re-forestation.
Then, the students and volunteers planted 50 tree saplings around the Gindo Center yard, and at the Market Garden area. The kids loved doing this- and were very organized in getting water in the hole before the tree went in, and after. Each student has taken on a specific tree to take care of. So they will all get the attention they need until they are strong and growing well.
