A terrific welcome to our new volunteer Thomas


Thomas Wilson, volunteer from Germany

Moet is lucky enough to have the help of new volunteer Thomas Wilsonwho arrived in Malawi at the start of August. He will be giving us regular updates from the school and the work that he is doing. 

He writes: 

It all started for me in the summer when I arrived her in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. I got picked up by Patterson, the director of Moet school and we started our journey to Mangochi. It seemed endless for me as I was very tired from my flight and already the sun was going down as I was filled with nervous excitement. 

When we finally arrived, it was a strange feeling for me. On the one hand, I was overjoyed to be here at Moet after almost 6 months of preparation. On other hand, I was leaving my friends and family behind and that would take me a while to get used to 

I soon threw myself into lessons, going into the school library and learning some Chichewa . I’m slowly understanding some of the structure of the language and the greetings. It feels like a small success for me as the language can take a while to get used to! 

I’m really enjoying my time in Malawi. It’s such a beautiful country and the people are very warm-hearted and friendly. I look forward to telling you more about the work that I am doing with Standard 4 and the way that I hope to help with Computer Science lessons.
