Just a random assortment of photos I've been meaning to put up. Enjoy!
1. For some reason everyone thinks chameleons are extremely poisonous and aggressive and will kill you. Everyone gasped as I crouched down to take the photo (there was a crowd of people who had put a good 10 feet between it and them - someone even had a giant stick).
2-3. While I didn't take too many photos from our National Youth Leadership Conference (NYLC), I was able to capture some moments from our hands on activities. This group was in the middle of doing some domestic visits with families who lived next to the training center. Coming off the heals of the national bed net distribution campaign, we had participants survey the neighborhood on how informed they were on malaria prevention and helping them hang mosquito nets if they weren't already hung.
4. Public Health volunteer Megan Townsend leads a training on using theater as a way to engage and educate the target population.
5. This boy was spending his afternoon riding the perimeter of the local soccer field. If you think this bike is too big for him, I should say that bikes can sometimes be twice the size of the kid riding it. It's actually pretty impressive they can ride them at all.
6-8. My youth group organized a soccer match against another organization in Pita. Although rainy season may be dwindling down to a trickle (finally) it hasn't left for good. Players continued through the mid-game downpour while the spectators tried to stay dry under the adjacent overhang.
