“You only get out of it what you put into it…” was definitely the attitude this Team adopted whilst at Imani Camp with Mama Mercy. As you will see by the photos and captions they worked hard but never stopped smiling and laughing! Great job and enjoy the rest of your adventure.   We arrived at Imani Camp on SundayåÊin time for lunch. We met Mama Mercy who showed us around camp familiarising us with our new home for the next few days. Later that afternoon we played football åÊin the field next to camp with some of the kids from the local village.

By the end of the day we were tired and dusty but felt a great sense of achievement especially when seeing the smiles on the faces of the kids.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Day 3 was spent de worming the goats which involved using syringes to squirt the medication down their throats much to their disgust. There was some stylish wrangling going on.

The team were able to complete 28 holes which was a great achievement helping the local farmers immensely! åÊLater in the afternoon we returned to fill them with fresh compost from the local livestock.

We had a real little factory going on!
