We are getting into a routine!
Our Bloggers today are Brittany Andrews, a graduated student from the Crime Scene Investigation program, and Hailey Ramoutar, a second year Criminal Justice Degree student.
Today was our second day with the kids. Instantly the kids remembered our faces and showed the same gratitude and excitement towards us just like our first day. We are all beginning to build positive connections with the children and teachers. Even though this was only our second day in, the volunteers confidently lead activities.
One thing that stood out to us was the living conditions of the children. We noticed the steep hills and the distance from some of the houses to the school. Some of the kids voiced that they have to trek these distances to and from school alone, while their parents are at work. With no side walks or safe pathways for the children to walk, we saw their small muddy foot prints around the school grounds. This was a really eye opening experience reminding us how grateful we should all be.
