Dancing Under The Mango Tree

In Trekeka they have 47 orphans that live on site  and 104 kids that go to school.  They are working on class rooms, but right now all classes are outdoors under mango trees.  It works real good in the morning, but by early afternoon it is very hot if you are out of the shade at all.  This picture is of one of my favorite teachers.  Her name is Harriet and she teaches music to all grade levels.  She starts out each morning  with the youngest class and this is them performing a beautiful little song and dance.  It was amazingly cute and I have most of it on video and will put it on youtube when I get back to the US.

Cheka Harriet is 20 years old and was born in Koboko, Uganda.  She is from the Kakwa tribe and is shy and humble.  But when she gets to singing, that changes.  She has an amazing voice and she led a group of older kids that did a Sunday morning church special that was very good.  Her dream is to go to America someday.
