Kids! Their enthusiasm is infectious.
Last month I visited the Grade 4 class at Glenburnie School to tell them a bit about Africa.
Here is a “campaign” that resulted from my visit. This short video presentation, created by Ashley, one of the students in the class, speaks for itself.
Ashley had originally had “With a Little Help from my Friends” as her background music but YouTube is picky about copyright so we changed it to some original African sounds. I recorded the music in the video when I was visiting a CanAssist project site in the village of Olimai, Uganda in 2011. The thumb piano band had welcomed me to the community in the afternoon and serenaded me again after dark. What a delightful treat for a visitor.
The money raised by the class will go to the S.P. Geddes Early Childhood Development Centre to provide furnishings (they have none at the moment).
