Many of the games that children play in East Africa are about things in their everyday lives: food, family and homemaking. These fun games are from a group of children near Iganga, Uganda. Before Send a Cow helped their families, many of these children were malnourished, only ate one meal a day and had very little energy to play. Through training in natural farming with their families, the children are now able to enjoy their childhoods and grow up healthily – having enough nutritious food for three meals a day and having the skills to grow food for the rest of their lives.

These games are wonderful examples of play around the world. They are easily adapted for younger and older children alike. The video is a great introduction!
