Every Wednesday is field day.

February 7th 2017. Nairobi, Kenya.

Every Wednesday, students bring their most comfortable shoes and biggest smiles.

We take them on a 25 minute walk from the school to the field, where they sing, dance and play all kinds of sports.

For about 2 hours all volunteers and teachers do is run around trying to chase kids running from you, or giving someone a piggy-back ride.

It is so heartwarming to see how they have this huge field to run and dance and play all kinds of sports, but still, all they do is compete with each other to see who gets to hold your hand the longest.

For them, sports are never a competition, during their games they never keep scores; there are never winners or losers.

Everyday should be a field day.
