As part of a project linking Bankton Primary, Livingston, with the children of the Kids In Need Project for ex-street homeless young people in Uganda, and the primary schools they attend [Mengo Muteesa PS and Mbiro Ntonmo PS] Bankton classes have been working with teacher Mrs Balfour to make poems about Harvest and Autumn to send to Uganda. In return the Uganda schools have written about Harvest in their country and their own lives.
The linkage between Bankton and K. I.N. is supported by Ewan McVicar in Scotland and Robert Ekapu in Uganda. Ewan has taken the individual poems written in Bankton, selected lines from each poem, assembled and slightly edited the lines, added tunes and recorded the songs.
