The last week has seen us coaching at Kyeijanga, a school that has never had volunteers before. To say we liked it would be an understatement. The staff were incredibly friendly; perhaps due to the novelty of having mzungus there for the first time, they were so interested in learning about life in our home countries. The food there was definitely the best out of all the schools – break times consisted of bananas, then for lunch we had the usual matoke, posho and beans but topped off with rice and avocadoes (it’s amazing how much difference they make!). This was all polished off with mountains of pineapple!
Unfortunately our time at Kyeijanga was curtailed, only spending three days there. Thursday was a public holiday, International Women’s Day, and although we were due back in school on the Friday, the van broke down a few metres after leaving the lodge. Instead a few of us walked through the forest to Kazuru to help out there.
