Today we did a 3rd workshop. While the ladies did beadwork I walked around the VCT (Voluntary Counseling and Testing centre) with Paul, one of the orphans, and while we were walking he told me his story about his life.
It started when I asked if he was mad/sad. He answered that he gets teased at school.
I asked why. Paul said “it’s because I have white parents.” (Paul’s adopted).
After that we walked in silence for about 10 minutes. Then Paul gave me a tour of all of the VCT and told me a story about wood working and welding at his high school.
He is 14 years old and smaller than me. He is also positive.
Best part of the day: listening to Paul’s story.
