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 of the teams, the same for iciangoua.net.
I was completely out of my comfort zone. I tried to do my best to stay with everyone, to help during the various activities and to not complaining when there where something that I did not like.
