Wednesday we back to the same school to teach the older gals that we missed on Monday. We packed another classroom full of 12-18 year old and dove into teaching. Before getting started with this though, we helped a portion of our group set up a puppet show stage to put on puppet shows for the younger children in the school. They did 2-3 different skits, each about 3-5 minutes long that talked about washing your hands and eating healthy foods. We had 7 younger children (9-13 yrs old) with us that controlled the puppets and it was a huge hit. We helped set up their stage and get them going and then took off to teach the girls about feminine hygiene.
I was starting to be much more familiar with the words and it began to go more smoothly. I still had to spend 15 minutes winning them over, but soon we were buzzing through education on menstruation, human bodies, having babies and the kit.
We went to another school in the afternoon where we did more puppet shows and another DFG class. That night we still hadn’t gotten our bags out of customs, which was so frustrating. We had visited with the other governor, gotten certified letters from all of the schools and clinics and they were still giving us a hard time about letting us take it with us. But once again had promised that probably tomorrow, Thursday, we would be able to get all of our bags out.
#worldvillage2016 Day 4: Wednesday We visited 2 more schools today to teach #daysforgirls and both experiences were amazing. My Spanish is coming back and I'm learning how to correctly name almost all male and female anatomy in Spanish & remembering more and more vocabulary. At the same schools we set up puppet shows to teach good health practices and sanitation to the younger children. Our kids performed it and got so good by the end of the day. The school kids loved it and adored playing with our kids after the show on their recess break. All 30 bags are still sadly in customs, but we truly believe we'll get them all back tomorrow morning. They are asking us to pay a $1000 tax to get them. We have taught tons of girls, now we need to get our hands on those kits so we can start handing them out. Hoping to teach tons more girls tomorrow. #education #dfg #daysforgirlsinternational
