What a day! It’s just Day 1 of our work days and we are absolutely knackered. Groups 1 and 3 started on the work projects with electrical guys installing six fans around the gym, the carpenters putting together a gazebo and a couple of picnic chairs, and the metal fabricators making some windows for the class rooms.

I used a drop saw that has a cutting disc, like the ones used in an angle grinder, but bigger. I had to use it to cut metal parts for a window frame. Some mistakes were made when I had to cut the frames at a 45 degrees angle. Both sides had to be cut opposite to each other so that it connects with other parts of the frame to form a square shape. I had also been helping the other metal fabrication students with the window frame and they were happy with the amount of help I gave them.
I went to the Ati School’s assembly area with the other students to watch the kids accept the gifts that they received. They were so happy, it was heartwarming to see the smiles on their faces. I also had been playing with a kid who latched onto me and I brought him to the basketball court and threw a few shots. It was a fun day and I really enjoyed myself.
