Anna M – Favorite memory

A favorite overarching theme I experienced with the people and their culture was the sense of community and their holistic ways of thinking and doing. Being welcomed into Saku Saku to teach lessons and being welcomed by the community at large – welcome ceremonies, home visits, birthday celebrations, the introduction ceremony and creating bonds with people in the village just through playing a game of netball every evening was truly remarkable. These experiences exposed me to a different way of thinking and shed light on things I may not have thought of otherwise. Through my experiences, I met some of the most inspiring and altruistic individuals that I am now lucky to call my friends.
