Letzte Woche musste ich mein Visum verlaengern. Ich hatte in Deutschland eines fuer drei Monate bekommen, aber am Flughafen haben sie es aus welchem Grund auch immer auf zwei Monate reduziert..und die waren letzte Woche schon rum. Also bin ich am Dienstag nach der Arbeit nach Koforidua gefahren, dass ist die Haupstadt der REgion in der ich lebe, um dort im Immigration Office den Antrag stellen zu koennen. Ich wusste in welcher Strasse das Office ist, aber nicht wo genau...also bin ich einfach mal die Strasse runter gelaufen und hab Leute gefragt. Die Antwort war immer "Das ist weiter unten, aber frag da nochmal:)" Also weiter unten bin ich dann zu einem riesen Gebaeudekomplex gekommen vor dem vier Polizisten standen...da dachte ich mir schon, dass ich richtig sein muss. Also hab ich die Polizisten gefragt und die meinten "ja ja das ist da drin...aber frag da nochmal jemanden:)"Also bin ich rein und hab, dann wieder jemanden gefragt, die nette Frau ist dann sogar mit mir gegangen und hat mich bis zur Tuer des Offices gebracht. Das ganze hat mich mal wieder an Asterix und Obelix und den Passierschein A 38 erinnert (oder an mich, wie ich letztes Jahr in der Uni meine Pruefungstermine rausfinden wollte:)Dem netten Officer an der tuer hab ich dann gesagt, dass ich mein Visum verlangern moechte, anscheinend hab ich dabei aber Visum so lustig ausgesprochen, dass er als erstes ins Buero rein ist, um jedem zu erzaehlen, dass ich das falsch gesagt hab...hahah alle hatten riesen Spass. So nachdem sich dann alle wieder beruhigt hatten, konnten wir dann auch endlich den Antrag ausfuellen. In dem Buero sassen 7 Leute, an 5 Schreibtischen und es lief ein Fernseher....zwei hatten laptops vor sich stehen, aber da haben sie auch irgendwelche Filme geschaut, einer hat sogar auf seinem ...

Ghana :)   (published in Ghana)

Den sidste uge har vi haft en masse at lave, da Izzy tager hjem paa torsdag og der er en masse ting hun gerne ville naa inden hun tager afsted. Hun ville fx gerne proeve at i kirke og det syntes jeg ogsaa loed spaendende, saa vi satte os for at finde en gospel kirke, da vi begge havde en ide og at afrikanere har store flotte stemmer.. Men den eneste gospel kirke vi havde set, fandt vi ud af var lukket, saa vi vidste ikke rigtig hvordan vi skulle finde en en kirke, indtil vi en aften er paa vej hjem og faldet i snakke med en dame som er paa vej hjem fra kirke, endda en gospel kirke, saa vi er meget interessede og til sidst spoerger hun om vi har lyst til, at komme med hende i kirke. Vi aftaler at tage med hende i kirke et par dage efter, og vi er ret spaendte.. vi moeder forventningsfulde op, og maa indoemme, at kirken ikke var helt som vi forventede, det var bjaelker med bliktag, stof som vaegge, en masse plastikstole og hoejtalere. En gruppe damer begyndte at synge, og det loed ganske forfaerdeligt!! en af damerne lignede at hun havde det virkelig daarlig og lagde sig ned paa gulvet og skreg, vi var sikre paa at hun havde det virkelig daarlig, men ingen reagerede paa det, og saa var der en der fortalte os, at hun ikke havde ondt, men hun var bare ikke sig selv ligenu, da hun kunne se ind i fremtiden og at hun saa en dreng blive draebt, det gjorde ikke situationene mindre underlig, da praesten startede han praedike med at tale og erektion.. Praesten praedikede paa twi og samtidig var der en der oversatte til engelsk, saa de talte i munden paa hinanden i hver deres microfon.. og herefter begyndte folk at synge, klappe og danse, nogle gange virkede det til at det gjalt om, at lave mest larm, det var naesten ikke til at holde ud... foerste og sidste gang i kirke her, men ...

TEACHING INTERNSHIP VOLUNTEER GETS VALUABLE EXPERIENCE IN SCHOOL   (published in Jamaica)

May 13, 2013 by   Comments(0)

“It is so different here from Germany” remarked Teaching Internship volunteer Swantje   Krebbs. She has been working at the Villa Road Primary school as a part of her internship requirements for university.  An education enthusiast, she loves children and is keen on their academic development. Having worked with both kindergarten and teenagers she finds it easy to relate to the diverse age groups of children with whom she comes in contact at her placement. 

Quite endearing, the 20 year old teacher in training loves to see results in the performance of the children. One of her most pleasant experiences and an indicator of her hard work was the high test score of a boy with whom she worked for weeks. She indicated that there were a few major cultural differences. The major ones being the large class sizes and the special education needs of the children based on age and grade level. She has been providing individual tutoring at her placement for children who are slow learners or who need special attention based on the assigned class work.

She enjoys the high spirits of the children and the care they sometimes show for each other. She has learnt to be more patient and understanding as a result of her experience with children in Jamaican classrooms and has a greater appreciation for the small class sizes and structure that exists in Germany. She is eager to complete her studies and realize her dream to be in the classroom fulltime. She is completing four months in Jamaica, two months on the Teaching Project and two months on the Care Project. She is just as excited to start the care project and looks forward to the diverse levels of interaction which she will have with the children at the orphanage. Thank you Swantje for tutoring the ...

SARA LINDER IMPRESSED WITH STUDENTS MOTIVATION TO LEARN   (published in Jamaica)

May 13, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Twenty One year old Sara Linder’s desire to learn about a completely different culture and way of living as well as encouragement from a friend who volunteered with Projects Abroad were the reasons that propelled her to volunteer with projects Abroad in Jamaica.

The young Swiss volunteered as a teaching volunteer at the McIntosh Memorial Primary school. Sara highlighted that it’s a good teaching placement for volunteers to gain experience and concretize their decision whether or not to enter the teaching career. She also mentioned that volunteers make so much difference at the placement because they get the chance to assist the teachers who are overburdened with large class size and limited resources.

Her tasks included group and individual tutoring, substituting for teachers in their absence, which she enjoyed, supervising students during devotional exercises, recess and bathroom breaks, creating learning aides such as charts and flash cards, assisting remedial students and teaching classes.

Her volunteering experience taught her to appreciate cultural differences, how to be creative and innovative with limited resources to get the lesson across.  As she noted the difference, Sara said that “although the class size in Jamaica goes up to 40 students they are more motivated to learn than students back in her home country.” She added that “although the classes are large, noisy and the classrooms are sometimes messy [because the students eat in the classrooms] and although the students talk a lot to each other, they still do their work.” She said she found that interesting because it shows her that no matter what your situation or limitations you can learn if you are determined to.

She advises prospective volunteers to be ...
