Agwata Volunteer Teaches Numeracy Skills to Women Beaders

Outreach Uganda volunteer, Judy G. spent 3 weeks in Uganda this summer teaching numeracy skills to two of our beader groups.  Besides teaching 45+ beaders the finer art of adding and subtracting numbers, she also introduced them to calculator skills.

But the funnest part of her class was playing Bingo at the end of each class.  The ladies had much fun and could even win small prizes.  Several of them even made their own Bingo cards so they could play at home with their children!  Below we see Judy teaching the ladies in the new classroom at the Agwata school.

On her last day in Agwata, the ladies were excited to host a bead buying marketplace for Judy (in the yellow rain poncho) to buy their beads.  A rainy didn’t slow Judy down!
