On the second day I arrived at the intern house in Bangoua, TTT, short for Train The Trainer, was held, lasting 3 days, which is aimed to help trainers know more about the organization and the project. Meanwhile, we got to know each other and developed level of understanding various cultures, Cameroonian customs included. Besides, we gained basic knowledge of delivering and presenting sections. At the end of the training, we arrived at the agreement of disciplines and rules of behaviors during our work in the school and living in the intern house. The project officially begun on 15th, July,…

I had the chance to go on the fields in villages where Webdev works. I went to an orphanage. Just a house with an almost empty room and view chairs and an inner courtyard. The kids are very open minded and came directly to us and we played together many hours. It was great to see the kids smiling. After we picked up another volunteer from the airport, we traveled together to Bangoua to the guest family. The next days, we visited schools and priests with whom we have a partnership for the projects. Most impressive for me was, to…

Cameroun…qu’est-ce que je savais avant d‘être venue ? Pas beaucoup. Bien sur, le séjour était bien organisé par Bobga Gerald et Hope Foundation/ Clotaire Ntienou et WEBDEV Foundation, quand même, je ne savais pas exactement où je vais rester, où je vais travailler avec qui je vais vivre. Une fois arrivée à l’aéroport, j’ai été frappée par la chaleur…;-) le transport à travers de Douala, la nuit dans le bus pour arriver à Bangoua, le village où je passai mes deux mois, était un tour d’un alentour jamais vu. Situé dans les montagnes, avec le sable rouge typique pour l’Afrique…

Despite of some difficulties, it was interesting to see how a NGO in Africa is working and I learnt to learn out of my mistakes and mistakes of others. So I see it nevertheless positive as an experience where one can learn from. I also think that everyone did a lot of efforts for the project and everyone tried to give the best.

The first days we spent at the school were used to deliver the same sessions like in the orphanage. In workshops adapted to the classes we implemented them. Afterwards we split us up. Everyone had one class to teach a language. I had the oldest children and tried to deliver them the German language. Therefore the teachers made us two hours available. So we spent Monday, Wednesday and Friday in school. Although was the Wednesday an exception because on Wednesday there was always the sport day. During the sport day we delivered German games like “British bulldog one two three”…

My personal goal was to have an impact on the children, teach them subjects that would be usefull and inspire them. Also encourage them to be curious and interested in the world different cultures, news and information, but mostly to study, that way they can change their life for better, to be ambitious and think big. I also wanted to see the real life in Africa and visit the country that is known for being Africa in miniature. On Monday and Friday mornings we gave health, language and culture sessions in the school (my sessions in particular were washing hands…

My expectations of the project If I am honest my expectations of the project were quite naive. I had travelled alot before and I think I expected the project to be like my previous experience. I did not consider the working aspect of the internship at all. I applied to come on the project to meet people from different countries and experience a completly differenet culture. I wanted to give myself a personal challenge to see how I would cope lving a very basic lifestyle, far away from home for such a long time! After speaking to Sarah I thought…

Every experience matters This is the first time I come to this continent, africa. I’ve experienced omething I never think about. I wrote my own story here.What ever it is good or bad, every part of it influence me and make me better. I saw the difference between different culture but I also saw how we are similar in many aspects.I found the prejudice we had before, some of them are really wrong. I can see my value when I was involved in the project even sometime I thought I helped less. There are many things to be improved in…

Dans un premier temps, je suis partie une semaine en avance dans le village concerné, accompagné des managers et de deux autres stagiaires pour promouvoir le projet auprès des églises et de certains lieux clés pour coller les affiches, distribuer les prospectus, en tentant d’inscrire déjà un maximum de participants. Ma seconde réalisation fut celle de la délivrance de mes sessions et de la participation aux autres sessions, ainsi que la sensibilisation dans certaines associations du village. Ma troisième réalisation à été ma contribution pour la réhabilitation du point d’eau du village. Les réalisations que l’on m’a confié et que…

Durant le séjour, j’ai été responsable de la gestion du volet sur l’entrepreneuriat en collaboration avec une équipe solide et très disciplinée. Je m’acquittais aussi du travail technique comme la traduction des présentations et leur élaboration en vue d’être présentées aux participants. J’ose espérer que j’ai été d’une certaine aide dans le succès du volet du projet Summer 11 pour les séances matinales et de celles en soirée dispensées au personnel de l’hôpital. Malheureusement, l’expansion du volet entrepreneurial à Kamna lors de la troisième semaine n’a pas eu les effets escomptés en raison d’un nombre insuffisant de participants répétés. Cela…
