This morning, I got to go on the ground and see the activities which S4S deliver in person. We went to Zamba Primary School to see one of S4S’ activity coordinators work with mentally disabled children of all ages before going to Sakubva Primary School to see S4S’ work with deaf children.
Both schools are in disadvantaged areas which were affected by the Cholera outbreak a few years ago. The trips were very humbling and it was impressive to see the difference which S4S makes to these children’s lives – it gives them confidence, joy and social skills and hearing them laugh and encourage each other was very poignant.
The children clearly love Isabel very much as, upon arriving at the school, they all ran over to hug her and play with her.
At Sakubva Primary School, the children were split into two groups competing against each other in various activities. For the sack race challenge, I was called up to the Red Team while Isabel was called up to the Green Team and I am pleased to report that the final score was PwC: 1, S4S: 0! (although, in fairness, I may have had a head start of a few seconds!)
