Day 69 of Project Portrait. I actually found another pic from Gambia that I totally forgot I took. On one of the days we had the chance to visit a local community school in Banjul that relies on donations to survive. There were three classrooms with 50 kids each, but I wouldn’t really call them classrooms, more giant cupboards. The kids were between 3 and 5 and as such were just full of beans. While the experience was amazing I couldn’t help but feel a little voyeuristic going to an African school and everyone being so deferential, mainly because I’m white. Awkward doesn’t really sum it up. I learned just as much about my own postcolonial guilt than the Gambian education system that day.
