Armed Forces Museum, Kumasi   (published in Ghana)

              Volunteers in Kumasi can all own up to this. Who has actually been to the Armed Forces Museum in Adum? We all see it every time we are in the centre and we all know it is there, but who has taken the time to go and visit it? I am fairly sure that no one has visited it in my two and a half months I have been here!

              So I took the initiative to go there and see what it is like. The museum is one of the easiest places to spot in the city centre. It has lots of tanks lined up just outside the entrance and it is opposite the Vodafone internet cafe the all volunteers go to. The entrance fee of 7 cedis seemed to be a lot, and on top of that I had to pay 2 cedis to take photos. I paid it as there was no turning back!

              I was not disappointed. In fact I really enjoyed the tour of the museum. It lasted two and a half hours and I could not have asked for a more thorough guide. The museum is actually pretty big and it has lots of different rooms, along with the prison cells and secret money storage room. The museum is built into the Kumasi Fort, which is why it is not just a museum, but a historical site. It focuses largely on the British-Asante wars in which many were won by the Asantes. It housed all sorts of weapons used in those wars, the old medals and badges and lots of photos taken in those days.

I learnt about the Ghanaians fighting the Japanese in Burma, which I must confess I did not know about. Old Japanese weapons and devices were kept in the museum.

Donation can be everything which is useful for the reciever. Projects Abroad Cambodia, recently, has donated money to making iron frame window to VDTO placement. VDTO has many class rooms but only one library and the library settle on the top floor of the schoold building. We made window for the library because it is very important to prevent any unexpected problems which may occure because the  children's careless which can upset their life.

There are six windows and we have spent 240 US dollars to made it. Director of VDTO thanks Projects Abroad that help to made the window for them because it is urgent need to protect children from risk.

Friday yester night was the last night of our some volunteers in Cambodia. We went out for a soft drink and dancing. There are around 25 volunteers and two staffs of Projects Abroad Cambodia participated at that night. We absolutely had a wonderful time and great dancing time at the local restarant in Phnom Penh. As some of our volunteers are a new comer so we introduce to each other and chatting about this and that and taking a lot of pictures.

Time coming to go back to apartment, we said good bye, good night and keep in touch to the volunteers who will leave tomorrow Saturday.

Sad and happy are at the same time :-).

Library Decoration   (published in Cambodia)

July 24, 2010 by   Comments(0)

Last week, group of Projects Abroad Cambodia had decorated the library of a placement call VDTO. We really did a good job. To finish decoration we spent around 8 hours to do and think how we should make it. The decoration was about the painting and drawing the picture on the wall and colouring the picture that we had drawn. Our volunteers had drawn the picture which suitable for our little children at the school, to make them happy when they see the picture and to encourage them to learn in the library. Not only the volunteers, but also the children at there had chance to help and draw the picture on the wall.

At the end of, we had done all as our plan and we also took a great picture together.

Hip hop breaks into Sri Lanka!   (published in Sri Lanka)

July 23, 2010 by   Comments(0)

Hip hop, breaking, popping, locking... These were the moves we were all showing off last week at Wadduwa Town Hall. Break dancing outfit from Switzerland, the ABCrew, were kind enough to share their talents with around 60 school kids from the Panadura and Mawala areas.

"Every Sri Lankan can dance!" said one of the group's members, Sebastian Rajakaruna... And it turns out he was right! Everyone got amongst it...

Milk packets and cream buns galore, the kids and volunteers danced their socks off. The crew taught us an hour of hip hop followed by an hour of break dancing. Gishan got some real cred after pulling off an awesome headstand!

The final treat was a performance from the professionals… they lit up the stage with flips, helicopters and incredible holds. Seeing the kids breaking it down was brilliant too. I’m sure the kids’ parents were tearing their hair out all night while the mini b-boys were breaking furniture all over the house! It was such a super day and it’s certain that the children will remember it for a long time!
