5 fantastic weeks volunteering at MOET School
By Merry Ford
I’ve recently returned from a fantastic 5 weeks at MOET, where I was teaching English and Maths to Standard 7 children progressing into Standard 8. I had a wonderful time getting to know the children and the staff, who were all incredibly friendly and welcoming. I found the teaching challenging, but really rewarding, and it was so refreshing to teach children who are really keen to learn, and almost always happy to be in school! This confirmed for me that the money I had raised was being put to a very good cause, as so little goes such a long way in terms of teaching supplies. For example, English lessons were made so much easier and more productive by the recent acquisition of English/Chichewa dictionaries. I was sad to leave after what felt like such a short stay, but I hope to return before too long, and wish all the children the best of luck!
