As an education Volunteer in southwestern Uganda, I have the opportunity to work on various secondary projects with local primary schools. In one nearby school, I facilitated a drama club where children could have the opportunity to express themselves, develop self confidence, and develop relationships with others. We also worked to create dramas based on things in their lives that mattered to them. This photo was taken in July 2011, as the children were processing in for their end of term performance. They performed their dramas with great pride that day, and one can see this pride on their faces as they walk in from their school’s front gate.
