It reminded me of a time in elementary school when I went with my mom to a gallery to pick up a portrait she'd painted of me (see left). She handed the painting to a man working there while she filled out some paperwork. I looked over and he was intently scratching the painting with his fingernail. He thought the freckle on my right cheek was actually dust until he looked down at me glaring up at him and realized it was part of my face.
We were at Karima Primary for a second time, this time unannounced, to check in on the feeding program. It seems to be going really well!
As we were leaving the head teacher told us, "Even the kids, they are saying the porridge is making them to be very wise."
I spent most of the next couple of hours in the shop making a list of all of Makena's products and their prices. Later I'll go back and take photos of each product for the website.
The power finally came back on around the time I usually leave. I stayed and taught both classes how to use the typing program, instructing them to complete a lesson everyday until our next class on Friday.
