We had a fantastic trip in May and we were privileged to have with us this year our good friends from North Carolina USA Nick and Kitty Lou Kimmel

Nick celebrated his 82nd Birthday while we were there and they had just had their 50th wedding anniversary.

I Hannah spent several days training the teachers and some other young women in the village on child development and their needs and creative ideas for pre-schoolers. I was very ably assisted by Kitty Lou and had 2 wonderful translators in Nadia and Hmad. At the end of the training I was able to give 2 copies of an Arabic curriculum to the teachers.

While we were training Nick was walking around with his amazing screwdriver repairing anything that needed his magic touch.

As well as his amazing skills with the screwdriver Nick also entertained the children by making balloon yoyo’s and balloonfootprints animals which the children all enjoyed. footprints2children with baloon yoyosNickCertificates
