I spent two weeks in Mbomo, on the Republic of Congo, as a teacher for Tales of Us, in partnership with Sabine Plattner African Charities. My job was to teach kids about conservation, through Character Design and Storytelling.
I worked with mud from the river to make face painting, and also materials we gathered from the forest like leaves, flowers and fruits. We built costumes and kids worked on a story called “the crocodile and the little fish”. On my last day, they reenacted a play for all the other kids in the village.
