We are currently hosting three interns: Two master's students from England researching shifting identities and notions of nationhood among the refugees, and an undergraduate student from Singapore continuing the arts therapy program we began a year ago. The latest iteration of the arts program focuses on photography.
Here is a quick update from one of the master's students:
All of them are a joy to teach and are always happy to learn! The children... especially the older girls... already know a lot of basic English so we have been refreshing their memories going over themes such as animals, family, introductions, weather and the body. We try to make this as fun as possible with lots of games and drawing! Twice a week we bicycle to [the other community], one day is spent focussing on photography/crafts and the other teaching English. We have started at the beginning with them as they know less English but they are catching on very quickly! Both communites are really enjoying the photography and craft sessions too!
