Teaching Underprivileged Children in a School on a voluntary placement in Livingstone, Zambia

         

I'm having a fantastic time so far! I went to the school on Wednesday morning after having arrived Tuesday afternoon. It is so depressing to see the state of the School - the ceilings are falling down, holes in the walls etc, but the people there are so friendly and brilliant! I am starting teaching properly on Tuesday - just observing for the time being.

Earlier on today in one of the lessons, Mrs Mumbita, a fantastic and helpful teacher, got me to teach for half of a lesson. After a little while I got the hang of it - well, apart from writing on the chalkboard! Then I had to mark what they had done - around 40/50 kids holding their hands up/holding their books in your face will take a while to get used to!

The other volunteers here are so nice and have done their best to help me fit in, for which I am so grateful!!
