I am spending 12 months volunteering as a teacher in Kyenjojo, West Uganda from August 2013 to August 2014. I am doing this alongside the not-for-profit charity Project Trust. - http://www.projecttrust.org.uk - I will be teaching English and Art whilst encouraging Drama and Music.

I have now set up an art club as my secondary project at the orphanage. To do this I spent some time making "how to draw" sheets of various things such as frogs, helicopters, horses etc and eventually managed to find somewhere to get them laminated. I was really keen to get the sheets laminated so they would last for a long time and at least I know I'll be leaving them something useful to use and enjoy,once I've gone. The children really enjoy this club and love using the sheets as before they mostly drew flowers and scribbles! So now its great to see them learning some new things, and you can see in the photos how much they concentrate!
