Life Skills

Today Takia was back at making masks. She is also teaching Raelee on the big sewing machine. She was very proud of the mask – and even the ties – she made today! She was really proud when she showed me that she even sewed the pocket to put a tissue in. Takia is very patient, and very good at teaching. Some people can be excellent at a skill but not so good at teaching it. She is quick too, last week she made around seventy-one in three days. For the boda drivers in our village I think they need about eighty more. She should have those done by the end of the week. The drivers were very surprised last week and very grateful for the gift!

Raelee challenged Salima she couldn’t hand sew a house. As she was watching Salima, Raelee started cutting and hand sewing eyes and mouth for an owl. Takia helped her cut wings and Raelee sewed them and the body on the machine! She was so excited at what she had done!
