The effort that goes into making the Chritsmas cribs at both orphanages is impressive, but the boys at Butterfly Hill always make a really special effort, here is some of their work:

india again…

The blog has been going for just over a year now. I began it to record a project i was running in India, in an orphanage called Daddy’s Home in rural Andhra Pradesh…Obviously it has grown into something more now, but i digress…the point is that i am going back to India, to that same orphanage in Buddavaram and to the same school where i taught for 5 weeks this time last year. Keep watching for updates and i will hope that the internet is slightly less erratic than it was last year!. Checked the weather…can expect a week of thunderstorms and temps around 30C…

For more on the classes i taught and the material produced by the students from last year, click on the images below:
