New Volunteers from Germany arrive to spend a year at MOET
On 3rd September 2011 after ten days of orientation in Lilongwe we arrived in Mpemba Cottage our home for the next year. We are Lena Braun and Hanna Miéville two 19year old GIZ volunteers from Germany. We will support the teachers of MOET Primary School in Mathematics and English in Standard 7 and 8. Furthermore we will continue the computer lessons for the older children, will do the dancing club and we plan to give extra tutoring for Standard 8 students. In our first two weeks we developed the new master timetable for Standard 5 to 8 and we wrote signs that explain the most important trees and plants to the visitors.
We are impressed by the activities of MOET such as the Permaculture ideology and the Anamed-Program. The small classes of only 25 pupils in average make it possible to teach in an effective way and to focus on the pupil’s problems. So they can be supported and encouraged.
We are looking forward to work with the whole staff of MOET that welcomed us very warmly..
