Hope Akello: "All of us drew for this project. All came together. We all had different ideas and promptly pieced them all together."

Hope's description of the design: "In the front where the oven door is there's flames coming out because there is fire inside and within the smoke of the flames there are the seven teaching animals that are crawling or flying out. Those animals are wrapped in ribbons; and the ribbons are four different colours- the four directional colours from indigenous teachings- red yellow white and black. They wrap around the two sides of the building. Within the ribbons are food items the small children of this neighbourhood have drawn like donuts lollipops and loaves of bread. Around the back you can see a little miniature oven with smoke coming out and people around the oven doing different activities and having fun and enjoying the food coming out of the oven."
