Our focus this summer was setting up a handmade paper mill. Marta from Australia, Jackie from Vermont and Shawn from Chicago were the teachers and it was so much fun that almost everyone joined in. The Nungua children were the intended students and, as usual, they were quick learners. They were also taught product development and created unique books and bowls. Long term plans, to be continued next summer, include fair trade marketing so that the children can earn school fees by selling their products. As with every summer at Aba House, we had other activities also. Perhaps the most unexpected was a performance by the children of Hamlet, produced and directed by Carol - student teacher from England.
