Photos of the schools in summer 2015
This summer I was lucky enough to visit and photograph the Isaac Newton and Mustard Seed Schools, as part of the International Friendship Visit. I first photographed the schools five years ago, and I was excited to see the differences. They weren’t subtle! Both schools had more buildings and pupils, and were buzzing with activity. It was lovely to see. The full album is here.
The Isaac Newton School has an amazing new medical centre, more equipment, and far more buildings:
The Mustard Seed School has far better cooking facilities, easily accessible running water, and a girls dormitory.
The children seemed more confident, too.
Some of the kids even asked me not to take their picture! This was a bit unexpected, but a good sign – they knew I was part of a visit from people who help fund the schools, but despite that they were still confident enough to assert themselves.
You can find the full gallery of photos here. We’ll be sending copies over to the schools for the kids to share.
