After morning exercises with Grace and breakfast, the AYLE community joined together in our main hall, the Water Hall, for an activity called the River of Life. Students took twenty minutes to visually represent their life story and important events on large pieces of paper, and then shared them in our smaller family groups. This activity is intense, and to ensure a safe space for sharing, ground rules were set. Participants had to:
Speak from the heart
Listen from the Heart
Be conscious of time
Trust yourself and the moment
After lunch, special guests Break Dance Project Uganda came for beat-boxing and break dancing classes! We can reveal to you that the secret to beat-boxing is chanting “baboons and cats, bouncing cats”, and after a demonstration, the students had a great time learning several break-dancing moves.
