    Bringing Spikeball to Nakivale

    Day 8

    A Spike in Joy

    Teachers in Nakivale Refugee Settlement are on site for 24 hours a day, sometimes for months at a time. Since they live and work at their schools, it can be tough to make space for themselves.

    Teachers Douglas, Laubeen, Milly, and Anithens told us that they were looking for something to do. And we can just the thing in mind…

    Spikeball is coming to Nakivale!

    Spikeball is a fast-paced, fun-filled game that’s similar to volleyball, but takes on a life of its own.

    After a quick explanation, the game began – and so did the laughter. Spikeball was the perfect way for these teachers to spend time together, take a break, and have some fun.

    It’s amazing how a ball, net, and some good friends can go such a long way in making the teacher’s dorms feel a little closer to home.

    This day of change brought to you by Spikeball.
