What better way to kick off a fund-raiser than with a little bit of cooking and lots of fun.
Kidchen Culinary School for kids by generously conducted a cookery workshop for kids aged 6-10 to raise funds for our mosquito-proofing project - The Anti-Mosquito Effect.

Oh, the bonus? Peeling off dried up glue from our hands together!
