Big Bear Hand-Out at Gwegwesha Pre-School

There were 33 bears remaining in the "pool" of bears from earlier this year - in August this year we partnered with a preschool in the wider Chintsa area called Gwegwesha. The preschool is a tiny school run by a husband and wife team with little to no support from the government, with 35 children and one small classroom.

A team of volunteers who were volunteering with local organisation VA32, visited the school to hand out the bears, which were really appreciated by the kids!

With a new school year beginning in January and bears still rolling in thick and fast, look forward to news about the next phase of the project asap!

A massive thank you to all the knitters for their time, creativity and commitment :)
