Students study math, science and even English like other students around the world. However, some of the other subjects like music and art, and even some of the fun recess games we are familiar with, are missing from the school day for them. Sticks for ...

Water is LIFE!

In 2014, Pam visited the Oloosinon Primary School as a volunteer helping build the dinning hall. While their she connected with the children and soon realized that clean water was greatly needed.

The well was repaired once but only worked a short time - as it really needed new casing to prevent further cave in. Thus the children were forced to collect water from the local water pans and springs - which are far from clean. ...
