a feeding scheme run by volunteers, funded by south africans

We started out with a large alphabet and number puzzle of which I gave every child a piece. They would then (theoretically) find the matching piece and build the puzzle. At this point though I had no translator to give direction, never the less a couple of youngsters just appropriated pieces and put it together.

I then divided the children up into a number of groups equivalent to the number of smaller puzzles. Each group had to put their puzzle together and when everyone done they swopped puzzles.

Apart fro the visual spatial exercise I had hoped to use the different shaped pieces belonging to the whole as an analogy to uniqueness and purpose but Fakizile was interrupted by other duties so couldn’t translate.

A lot of fun was had though.
