My experience in tent school- Angela

I have been working in Yadthady Tent School for almost 4 months and all I can say is that I am loving it. I am working with Shalini, the local teacher; she is always very helpful and great to work with. At the moment, we have 13 children attending school, we had a bigger group but a few families left the camp because their work here has finished due to the rainy season and other issues. It was very sad to see these children leave because I became very attached to them but I am very happy I was able to be part of their lives for a short period of time and spend time teaching, playing and just hanging around with them
