Vibeke – Denmark

Education volunteer, ,

I am Vibeke from Denmark, and my project was Education Support. I was assisting teachers in two local schools. The kids were adorable, and I enjoyed seeing them develop. I love that people were so friendly and forthcoming. Everyone said hello to me and wanted to teach me some Kiswahili. I had problems getting used to Tanzania life back home, if we say five minutes, it is sharp, but in Tanzania, it may take half an hour. You need to be open-minded and friendly to people, and they will be sure kind to you. Things that I feel are good are the lovely weather and that people always want to help each other. I think I made some difference. I taught a local school a different way of teaching. How to learn through playing.
