Well, I have been in Rwanda 3 weeks and still don't have a home but have been staying with another volunteer, Epiphanie, and doing workshops with her for new Rwandan teachers. The workshops are aimed at making classrooms more child-centred and to use more than 1 learning style when teaching. There has also recently been a switch from French as the lingua franca to English so many of the teachers also need a lot of training in English methodology. It was hard work but by the end of the week we were like well-oiled machines and I now feel like I could do a successful workshop on my own or with another volunteer any time!
