To måneder som lærer i Togo   (published in Togo)

December 16, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Jeg har i forbindelse med mit projekt som lærer skrevet en artikel til Projects Abroad. Den får I også lige her:

Jeg er ved at være ved vejs ende i mit ophold i Togo. Her har jeg undervist først på en privatskole og derefter på en offentlig skole. Jeg har startet en engelsk klub på privatskolen og oprettet hjælpe timer til interesserede elever på den offentlige skole. Grunden til at jeg har været på to skoler er, at jeg ca. halvvejs inde i mit ophold selv ønskede at skifte. Der hvor jeg var, fik jeg ikke lov til at gøre meget i løbet af dagen og sad for det meste bare og overværede læren undervise. Det skiftede da jeg kom til den offentlige skole.

Her er jeg også tilknyttet en engelsklærer, men forskellen er, at han ofte står for den første time, hvorefter jeg skal lave den samme for en anden klasse på samme årgang. Det har været en stor udfordring, som jeg altid vil huske. Der er mellem 60 og 80 elever i en klasse, og derfor er det svært at sikre sig, at alle har forstået, det der er blevet sagt. Derudover tillader lokalerne og antallet ikke meget andet end hardcore tavleundervisning.For engelsklæren på den offentligeskole har jeg helt klart fungeret som en aflastning. Et job som lærer her i Togo er dårligt betalt, og det er sjældent, at de rent faktisk bliver betalt til tiden. Engelsk læren på min skole har virket glad for, at jeg har kunnet hjælpe til med fornyet energi. Han har brugt mig ivrigt, og efter mit samtykke har han også sendt mig alene til timer. Der står jeg så en 21-årig pige med lyst hår og forsøger at ...

December 16, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Marc Grossman is a former care volunteer from Germany who worked during two months at the ASF Care Centre. Two years after his journey to Senegal, he sends a great donation to the centre.

The donation consists of: 26 t-shirts, 04 football jerseys, shorts, shoes, soccer balls, tennis balls and dart game.

The coordinator and male nurse of the ASF Care Centre, Atou Kane Seck and Amina the other nurse of the centre gave the clothes to the talibes.

The dart game and balls will be used during the leisure activities organized for the children once a week at the ASF Care Centre!

The children are grateful for that donation that proves that the centre is still in your mind Marc! Big thanks to you!

VOICES OF THE WORLD MEETING   (published in Senegal)

December 16, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Last Wednesday, the Voices Of The World Club met at the Projects Abroad centre at five pm as usual. The Journalism Volunteer Natalie and I handled the workshop on the topic ‘Interview: the important steps to consider”.  The Volunteer Natalie as she has been working at one of the biggest radio station in Saint-Louis shared with us her personal experience.

At first we studied the different steps before the interview; particularly the preparation which is the key word to conduct a good interview. The preparation step includes:

-definition of the purpose of the interview; it is important to define what the interview will be use for, the base for an article or only used as a source of information.

-research to be able to already have a length ahead on the interviewee, the interviewer should be able to know at least his subject or topic.

-preparation of the questions is the second step to take into account; the questions can be numerous but they should have a link to insure the coherence of the interview.

After having prepared the interview, it is now time to conduct the interview. The interviewee should feel comfortable and at ease, and the interview should look like and interesting and smart conversation.

During the second part of the workshop we simulated interviews to see if the students were able to practice what they learned. The interviewers prepared interesting questions on topic they chose; the exercise was really interesting we noticed a great interest from the students.

Äntligen framme!   (published in Sri Lanka)

December 16, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Äntligen framme i Sri Lanka! Det känns verkligen overkligt. Dagen har varit ganska lång och inte så händelserik. Har velat sova hela dagen. Jag ligger nämligen 4,5 h före er där hemma! 

Flygresan var lång men gick bra trots allt. Tog lång tid innan jag hamnade på rätt plats i Frankfurt. Jag har även skaffat ett simkort här nere så vill ni kontakta mig gör ni det enklast via facebook. 

imorse när jag kom fram och stod och väntade på att värdfamiljen skulle komma och öppna höll jag på att bli ihjälbiten av myggor. Och det har fortsatt hela dagen! 

Lite ensamt är det och självklart saknar jag familjen där hemma men nu ser jag fram emot att få sova om några timmar. 

 

Puss o kram på er alla!

A Care Volunteer found her second family in Thailand by Gitte Skovlund Iversen   (published in Thailand)

December 16, 2013 by   Comments(0)

How can I summon up three months in one paper, in one article? There is no way to do it. But I can start from the beginning. Nervousness, that’s the first feeling I remember. Sitting in the airport, waiting and for the first time all by myself. I was on my way to Thailand, a foreign country and a part of the world I have never been to. I was excited and looking forward to the experience, but most of all I was nervous. Luckily it didn’t take me long to get over my nervousness. My host family was lovely from the beginning. One of the most said sentence from my host mom was: “Are you hungry?” I was never going to starve. She had always food ready and a lot of it too. She and my host dad were amazing. They cared about us, me and the other volunteers, and asked if we were okay. Even though their English wasn’t good, they tried to help us in any situation. They told us about their life and opened up so we could get to know them and the culture they lived in. I had a long time with them and I really got to know them and see what an amazing family they were. I joked with my host dad, cooked with my host mom and helped my new sister with her English homework. I felt like home. I have a second family in Thailand!

I was one of the lucky persons to work at two places during my stay in Thailand. First I worked at a school called Ao Nambor School. It was a lovely place and I enjoyed running around and playing with the kids. I had a lot of fun with them and loved all the time I spent with them. I was also very lucky with the staff. There was an English teacher at the school called, Kru Neng. She was a very open minded and wonderful person. She let me in her life and she told me a lot about the culture in Thailand. I got to know the good things as well ...
