Excitement surrounded Flatt and his team’s visit to BBL. Flatt, KDB’s head honcho, showed he was a good sport by judging a card competition for the children; the children had drawn and coloured cards in honour of KDB’s visit.
BBL teamed up with SAREP and the Okavango Artists Association during the school holidays for a 4-day long “Arts and Life Skills” workshop. The program consisted of two days of life skills lessons covering topic such as HIV/AIDS and goal setting.
As part of our Life Skills and income generating programs we have started a vegetable garden and poultry farm here on the BBL grounds. The students have been working hard for the past few months on making plots, planting seeds, and watering the vegetables daily. They have also been working on a business plan to get funding to buy chickens.
