Someones in the Kitchen with Grace

By Tracy G., CE Adviser in Africa


Today I was on kitchen duty. We started at 9am sorting beans and didn’t stop until 2pm. The kids are eager to help and seem to enjoy showing me the difference between “good” and “bad” beans. Grace, the cook, works pretty much all day long. She gets up around 6am to make porridge for the kids and tea for the volunteers. Then she starts to prepare lunch and dinner. In between all that she sorts beans, rice, maize, and peels pumpkin in preparation for tomorrow. Her day is complete after dinner is served, at 8pm.

It was a good first day and allowed me to get a feel for the kids personalities.
