On July 8th, our volunteer group of youth set off for the Global Youth Expedition 2014! We gathered at the Calgary airport and began the long flight to Ethiopia.
The first Education Support Center that we visited was the Kality Center. We read, and acted out, a story; “The Little Red Hen”, and we did a big art project where the students got to draw and decorate their favourite type of animal. Everyone loved it! Especially the fact that there was glitter.
When everyone had had a chance to cover their artwork in glitter, and go through the story a few times, we took a break and played soccer with the kids. It was the perfect first day of our expedition!
