Learning should always be fun!
Here is Brenda counting in threes.
A lot of times the best results aren't achieved by sitting on a chair in a classroom.
We believe in an open-minded, playful learning environment.
School time is the kids' favorite time of the day and they are learning incredibly fast.

There are two types of racism:
Some people will look at this picture and all they will see is a black girl probably growing up to be some lazy woman, fleeing to the west to steal their jobs and abuse the social system while giving birth to 17 children, who will all be criminals.
Others will see a little, poor, black girl, assume that she doesn't have enough food, suffers from day to day and has to walk hours to get some contaminated water, while being attacked by lions and crocodiles.
Almost no one will see this picture for what it is: A little girl, who picked some wild lavender. That's it.
How can anyone tell whether she is rich or poor, whether she comes from Uganda or Germany?
But for those of you that have read this far and are interested in finding out more instead of just assuming.
This is Aulat. She is seven years old. She runs as fast as nine year old boys. She can be loud and overwhelmingly affectionate. She can be dreamy and get lost in a world that only exists in her own head. She is just a kid. And just like any other kid she does not deserve this world filled with hatred and racism.

This week school is all about our environment: Cleaning up the island and getting the area around the school ready for a perma culture garden.
Today Joel and Josie did a great job picking up all the plastic that gets washed up on our beaches.

Mattia and Andrew have mastered the kneeboard water acrobatics! 😁
What looks like a lot of fun, actually is a lot of fun, but can also save lives in the future. Just last week another fisherman from our little island has drowned, because he didn't know how to swim. We let the BIPS-Kids basically grow up in the water, to make sure that something like that will never happen to them!

The Bips-Kids love art class. Today they built little kites that now fly around our classroom making it much more colourful.
Here are Enock, Brenda, Amos and Andrew showing off their work!

What can we say. Too many captions for this one. At least the car looks comfortable.
You'd be surprised how many people in Uganda end up parking their cars or trucks like this.

One day we'll put together a book of the craziest things ever transported on a little 125 motor bike, ( known here as a Boda Boda ). We see something unique just about every time we come into Kampala to get supplies, but this bed on a busy highway is just pretty normal. The one we really want to get is the coffin. Then find out if it is full... 😄

Ibra alias "Little Tarzan" loves swinging on the vines in the beautiful forest on our little island. In some aspects the kids here grow up in a paradise, surrounded by lush forests, hills and beaches rather than a concrete jungle.
But living in paradise comes at a great expense. Access to health care or education facilities is basically non existent. And polluted water and a lack of electricity are the issues they deal with every day.
