Davide Delvai, Italy 2017

My goals were to help with the various activities concerning the different projects both in manual and intellectual way. My personal goals were to experience a different way of living, without all the comforts that I use to have and to understand more my personal soft skills. Concerning the Madiba project during the morning I was teaching to the teenager Italian and IT class. During the afternoon classes, in the hospital, I was assisting the IT and sometimes the English teachers. Regarding the WaLi project, since I do not speak French I was mostly the photographer and kind of assistant of the other member…

Susy Jian, Italy 2014 & 2017

[:en]My main goal was to have an experience in education with kids and to grow personally speaking. I met Madiba project in 2014 when I was in Cameroon for another internship in an NGO working in Human Rights fields. Already three years ago I was impressed of this project because I saw how much it was concrete and how much it could really change the situation. That’s why this year, I decided to come back to this country and to get part of this project. I expected to live in a local reality and to get in touch with a real Cameroonian village without…

Beñat Aranburu, Spain 2014

My name is Beñat and I live in the Basque Country. Last summer, I travelled around Cameroon for a few weeks. Before going to Cameroon I had the opportunity to get in touch with Webdev Foundation, a Cameroonian NGO that is willing to help communities around the country. Once I was in the field, I personally witnessed the work they are doing and the impact that their projects have on the local population. Webdev Foundation focuses on education, knowing that their work is going to improve living conditions of those communities in the long term. Although their primary field of…

Asanfsky Li, AIESEC ZZU I am Asan Li, I arrived in Douala, Cameroon in 10th , July,2014 and began my EP trip. It took me more than 6 hours from Douala to my intern village: Bangoua, which was located in West Cameroon. At the very start, I was scared by the total strange environment, congested bus and language obstacle. However, after reaching Bangoua, everything became good. People in Bangoua were always well-mannered and kind, you could show your smile and said Hello to every stranger. And the landscape here was also awesome, I witnessed the rainbow crossed a valley, countless…

Miranda (China), 2014

I was very glad to be in the team of the Webdev Foundation. I spent 4 weeks with lots of great partners: Asan, Manuela, Shandy, Stefan, Sean, Anna, Juana, Clara, Franklin, Aristide, Jason, Song, Stephen, Gustav, Gildas and our chief Clotaire. I had a very great time, and together we did a lot of jobs here. This could be one of my best experience in my life. I worked with Asan to teach the kids basic Chinese words. Like cloth, animals, food, verbs and so on. We combined Chinese words with pictures, and interacted with the kids, making the class…

I enjoyed working with the international team very much, and I am sure that the students, too, enjoyed the cultural exchange. Sessions like Chinese were only possible with the Chinese volunteers. However, I do think that in the next years there should be more French lessons for the volunteers. They were very dependent on the French speakers, during classes and simply to go to the market. I am very thankful for the opportunity to take part in the Bangoua Summer School 2014. I spent two and a half wonderful, varied and exciting weeks with nice and interesting people. I will…

The working relation was a mixture of pressure and also relaxed. There were times things got dragging and there also times things were running smooth. In general, the supervision from the CEO shows a great deal of leadership. The works of the organization is perhaps a saving grace to the people in the rural areas where the project is being held. So many people are educated in aspects they never believed to get. They say the success of an organization lies in the strength of the different teams that makes up the organization. On this note, I strongly believe that the strength of WEBDEV lies vastly…

Getting on the project: Finding the project was rather tricky as it would not come up when I was searching the internet for volunteering in Africa. One of my friends mentioned doing work exchange as a part of her university and I used that phrase to search. Eventually I came across a student exchange blog entry that pointed me towards AIESEC on the Polish speaking internet. AIESEC is an international student organisation that can support potential candidates with finding a project to go volunteering on shorter projects, or do a longer project and get paid. When I registered with AIESEC,…

Before I went to cameroon, it’s totally a blank to me.Although there were a lot of message came to me,I knew that’s not true,there are still lots of misunderstanding of africa,so one of my goal is to explore the real africa by myself. And also,there were lots of volunteering I can do in china,why I choose to went to africa,that’s maybe the most inportant goal:to see how I would be when I am in an environment which is totally different.I have to face the differences on culture/life habits/food/communication…all kinds of things.It’s also a experience to explore myself. … I saw…
