Natotela sana

The past few days I have laughed, cried, danced, signed, learnt, taught... but most of all I fallen in love.  In love with Zambia.. with Zambians.. with the amazing work that Sound Seekers is doing here.. and with all the Deaf children that I have been lucky enough to meet on this trip.  Spending time at their school is one of the best experiences of my life and one that I will never, ever forget.

Within minutes of arriving their smiles were infectious and I had about 20 children surrounding me making me teach them the BSL alphabet and then they wanted to know every word... good, happy, hungry, proud, school.. all giggling and showing each other the differences between the languages.

Below are just a few images from spending the day with the Sound Seekers team who were providing hearing tests and hearing aids for the children at the school.  I have so many more images, some video and a whole lot more to say about this incredible trip.. so I'll be back.. but first I have a flight to catch..

 *Natotela sana - Thank you very much in Zambian (Bemba)
