One word for the Jubalation tour in Juba, South Sudan: Wow!
The tour was intense. It was taxing both emotionally and physically but my energy and willingness to keep going came from the good team spirit amongst my fellow clowns, the supportive Terre des Hommes (TdH) staff members and last, but not least, the undying willingness of our beneficiaries to engage in our activities.
Cape Town, South Africa – Over the last few months working with Our Story Your Story, I have had the wonderful opportunity to get to know so many incredible people. In addition to the amazing people I am working with, the participants – youth, elders, learners, and facilitators – have been vital to my own love of and dedication to the project.
15 April 2015, Durban - It's time to mobilise.
Xenophobic violence has started up again in a big way. People are being killed and chased from their homes. Other's are lining the streets in town with weapons, waiting to defend their businesses and friends.
Week 2 of the Injabulo tour in Ingwavuma was a lovely week. The show is getting better and the children's reactions are always so genuine and honest. This keeps us on our toes and gives us desire to keep pushing the envelope to see their reactions, even the 'boos' because you know they are paying attention and wanting to join in on the fun.
