Inclusion camp

On the 3rd and 4th of April we took over Kisega school for two days, the idea was to sensitise the children and teachers about disabilties and empower the children to overcome there fears of interacting with there peers who have a disabilty.

On both days we hosted a variety of activites,

Puppet bible study 

  Each day we had a themed Puppet  bible story   

    Day1: You are fearfully & wonderfully made
Day2: we all have strengths, weaknesses

On day 1- we got all the children to draw, colour, and cut out their hands. Through this they learnt how unique and different there were.

Each day the children and staff learnt sign language

Josephine and Teddy (SOH staff) sneaked in to learn more sign language also.   Josephine wouldnt use words only signs for two days

Children learning sign language

Children had the opportunity to learn what it was like to walk without being able to see

Children played games without hands,

Children got a chance to learn how to play football through                               a USA soccer coach

As all childrens camps have to have we had rely races!!

 The children and teaches all had rely races.  It was a proud moment when George lubega(one of our deaf children) won the childrens race!!

 We Ended our time with a prayer  and communion
