Day 7: Sweaty, Dirty

2

Our second day in Lolito was full of all kinds of dirt, sweat and giggles. Today we started building the urinals, a challenge for the entire team because of the intense heat and heavy lifting. Despite the physical strain, our day was far from unrewarding. As we worked, the children played around us, quick to smile when we caught their eye and eager to help shovel sand or carry bricks.

After some construction, we ran activities for the children. It was fun to bring out the parachute, as they have never seen one before, and everyone loved watching the kids play with it. We also had time to meet more children from the community and have conversations with them. Our day has left all of us exhausted but in high spirits. No amount of dirt or sweat can bring us down when we have so many smiles surrounding us.
