The children are patiently waiting for their cue to pick-up their bowls and have their lunch. The children are provided a breakfast and lunch each day at school. Every morsel of food in their bowls is consumed.  The orderly behavior exhibited by the children was endearing that provided a display of innocence.

This is the door to the one-room schoolhouse (referred to as a creche) where these little ones were posing.  You can see some of the crafts that they created hanging from the ceiling. A creche provides the initial foundation of learning for these young Zulus.

Washing their hands before eating was a required ritual. This little one needed some help and her eyes just say “My Turn”.

Ziggy, a community relationship counselor for the African Impact Organization, is requiring each child to pronounce the letter and word before being permitted to go out and play. The children line-up and wait their turn. One child was held back until the end to try again.

An unexpected encounter while strolling along the dirt roads of a seaside village in Mozambique was viewing and photographing a caravan of a wedding party. The first pick-up truck carried the entire troupe of bridesmaids while the bride and groom followed in a truck decorated with balloons.

Once the wedding party arrived at the market place the celebration literally moved into “full swing”. You can feel their rhythm with their movements and the singing in their native language was absolutely beautiful.
