About home visits

Today we were in the mountains doing home visits. These visits are a delight usually as we love catching up face to face with the children and families. Sometimes they are challenging as we need to speak sternly with the children about doing sufficient home work. 

We go by motorbike to some homes, but by car to most as they are mainly far away from the office. We sometimes have to walk a while to get to them, past farms and rice fields. 

Most families although poor, are very generous, and provide water or tea and yesterday one family had snacks available and lunch for us too.

We do the updates with both the child and a parent or grandparent or who ever the main person is who cares for them. We finish by taking photos to send to their sponsors with their annual update.
