SHARING ART AND FRIENDSHIP WITH CHILDREN IN UGANDA

We are so very full of joy at having started a Penpal/Artshare program between our children and the children of Integrated Bayouth Dreams in Uganda.

Each month we choose a theme and our kids create a postcard with a piece of art and questions for their buddy and then the children in Uganda respond with theirs. We are so overwhelmed with the gratitude and love it is encouraging in both groups of kids  and we are excited to see these friendships develop.

Our kids have started asking questions like: Do they have internet? Do they have TV? Do they have families?

When I asked one of our girls if this experience made her happy to have the things she has she said yes it did but she also thought this must be making our Uganda friends grateful for what they have too…perspective.
