UGANDA: Teach kids basic life skills
|Mr. Monkey Lefranc|
Many years ago, Natasha jumps off the bus and says “I am gonna make for Monkey a suit. I do not think he likes being naked all the time”.
MLN: And exactly how are you going to do that Monquette?
She proceeds to tell me that they had learned to sew clothes and repair clothes in 4-H. More information follows about the 4-H program in the Canadian Province of New Brunswick. Our local community runs it and both girls attended The Anglican Parish of Shediac’s 4-H program taught by various members in our community in Shediac.
Rebecca and Natasha were taught how to sew and repair clothes by our wonderful Parish member Sharon Connors.
Kid whips out the sewing machine and the sewing machine. Then takes remnants of material (I always have a lot of material having taught how to sew by my mother and I used to sew all my clothes plus some for the girls) and makes a suit for Mr. Monkey.
Monkey is naked now because his suit is in the wash. You will also see the clothing pattern that Sharon got the kids to start with. She had them make PJs first before other things like Aprons, etc.. but started with the Pyjamas because kids love to wear what they make themselves.
Meanwhile Uganda kids have no knickers. I am not sure if I should be crying or laughing. You people need to teach the kids basic life skills. OR else they will be begging for undies for generations.
