Birthdays

As a friend’s birthday approached, I thought it would be a lovely surprise to film one of the classes at primary school singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her.  Unfortunately in rural Uganda, celebrating birthdays does not happen…it is seen as frivolous and a waste of money when there are much more vital things on which to spend what little you have.  I therefore had to get John Bosco to explain to them the concept.  I managed to get a great video with the children singing their hearts out.  The only problem was that the internet here was too slow to upload it!
