The WordPress daily prompts and photo challenge are among my favourite things to do and I try to participate as much as possible. So it’s lovely to share my favourite photo of the year once again.
It was watching little Shan Michael and the other children of Botongon overcome their initial reservation and fear of the microphone in the lead up to World Literacy Day.
We were rehearsing to livestream our literacy day celebrations, and the kids were practicing short speeches, prayers and just saying their name into the microphone. It took a bit of coaching but little Shan Michael (with a lot of encouragement from the bigger girls) said his name beautifully.
And this remains my favourite photo of the whole year.
