Uganda and Zambia and Habitat for Humanity

During RE class this week we learnt about building a church in Uganda with Habitat for Humanity. Our Teacher worked with Habitat for Humanity 6 years ago in Zambia  she went there with a group of transition students and some parents. She showed us lots of photos of her time in Zambia where she helped to build a house for a woman called Beatrice and her children. She showed us pictures of the houses she stayed in for two weeks, the type of food she ate and what they had to do to get water for a shower.

 

It was a big eye-opener. the scenery was beautiful, stark and clean. She showed us the house being built step by step. She had photos of animals she saw  n the area. We could not believe that the houses had such few rooms in comparison to our houses.
