Week 3 Blog by Tom+Selorm

The week started on Monday. We went to schools to teach hand washing and healthy eating in the Primary Schools, and also those in the Junior High School taught personal hygiene and Malaria and its prevention. School hours lasted from 9am to 11am. It wasn’t easy teaching the topics since teachers were on strike. In the afternoon the team leaders presented their Active Citizen Day programme on Peace and Conflict.
On Tuesday, we follow the same routine going to the schools and treating the same topics. In the afternoon the awareness event committees met to plan more for their events. After that we had the Team Leader Platform led by Agnes and Joanne.
We went to the schools on Wednesday some with ICV counterparts to help make the lesson easier with Fante translation .

Team members in class

We met after school at the office to discuss a new approach to introduce our health topics in the community. Our team leaders came out with a new plan to divide the team into pairs to do house to house and discussion of health related subjects into the community instead of the classrooms. Also we had a community health talk led by Teiko, Joanne and Naomi. The topic was The Menstrual Cycle. Later on we had our well deserved social held be Kezia and Agnes on the Beach.
Thursday morning we got into our event committees and plan more, the Boat Race Committee started making posters and banners to advertise their event.
In the afternoon, we started our water sachet net project and some of the volunteers went out to collect sachets in the village. Later on Selorm and Teiko had their My Culture Day (MCD). The topic was Naming Ceremony in Ghana. At 6:15pm to 6:30pm, Teiko, Joanne and Naomi carried on their community health talk on Healthy Eating.

Sachet net begun

On Friday, we started folding and cutting the sachets for the sachets net projects. Volunteers watched a video from the previous cycle on how to make a water sachet net. We also continued the same activity the afternoon. In the evening, volunteers were divided into pairs to find out where they will be doing their house to house health discussions.

Star Volunteer for the past 2 weeks-Agnes

The week ended with the star volunteer of the week voting which went to Agnes an ICV.

The week began on Monday with our first 1-2-1 session from 11:00am to 2:00pm, after which we went on Abrobiano community tour and visited the three schools in Abrobiano where we were warmly welcomed by the head teachers and the students in Abrobiano  M/A Junior High, M/A primary and Islamic primary schools.

On Tuesday we were introduced to our allocated classes where we observed the morning lessons from 9:00am to 12:00noon.after class we went for lunch and came back at 2:30 where we had a meeting to plan for our awareness event by the committees which were community boat race, sports weekend, Abro’s got talent and kids-festival, drama. Kenneth acted as the team leader for the day on the Team leader’s platform.

On Wednesday the ladies of the team woke up at 5:30am to help the women in the community in a communal labour in fetching sand where the UKV ladies had their first experience carrying sand on their head which was fun. And on that same day we had our first social held by the team leaders Joshua and Vincent at 8:00pm to 10:30pm, unfortunately there was a power cut but it was fun and we had grilled chicken on that day which was finger licking and we even asked for more like Oliver twist.

On Thursday morning at 6:30am the team started football training in preparation towards cape coast’s ICS team visit in two weeks. The session ended at 8:00am. During the day we met at 3pm to discuss our Action research questionnaire on sexual reproductive health and hygienic food preparation. At 4:30 we had a meeting. After that the team had their first MCD (my culture day) program led by Joshua the team leader which he talked about English dish which was about traditional British breakfast and Sunday roasted.

On Friday we were divided into two groups to take out our survey project at 9:30am on sexual reproductive health and hygienic food preparation in schools and we went on to formally greet the community Chief and his elders which they warmly welcomed us. At 3pm we came for a meeting which ended nicely.

During the weekend, some team members rested, some planned their lessons for the week ahead whilst others worked on their action research reports and the newsletter.

 

First Week in New Zealand

So after two 10 and a half hour flights and a 7 hour stop off in China me and my fellow Lattitude Volunteer Callum finally arrived in Palmerston North (Palmy) for our orientation. We were met at the airport by Sharyn the country manager, Zenani a Lattitude volunteer from Canada and Felix and German Volunteer who was with us for orientation. We were taken to a motel for the night and just crashed as we had barely slept the previous two nights! Its amazing how well you get on with people when you are just thrown together!

The following morning we were met by Sharyn who took us into the town to the post office to apply for a tax number and then sort out bank accounts and phones. We went to a cute little cafe for lunch where we met two other German volunteers. Finally we went back to the Lattitude office where we went through Earthquake procedures and expectations while on placement.

The next day Sharyn was unavailable as she was doing a predepature briefing for the NZ volunteers going to England and Canada next year so Sharlene took us to a cafe in the Manawatu gorge and then up onto the rainy hills to see a wind farm. She then took us back to her house where we went on the trampoline with her daughter and her son came out and played Rugby. This was our first encounter with NZ sheep! We then joined the pre departure briefing and chipped in any local knowledge of England we had!

On Monday morning we drove up to Camp Raukawa my home for the next 7 months! We were met by the camp manager (only other female) and then the other instructors. That afternoon we drove into Wanganui to buy the weeks shopping as we had no caterer due to our first school group coming in 2 weeks. That evening we walked with 20 kids up to the Raukawa falls for their evening activity. The following day we were shadowing activities. I shadowed High Ropes and Indoor climbing, I had to do a bit of belaying and general encouragement of the kids. My best moment of the day was when a girl came up to me and asked if I knew Kelsey, I said who’s Kelsey and she said it’s my auntie she lives in England!

The rest of the week we have been doing general activities training in preparation for instructing throughout the summer season. We practised knot tieing and all the activities.

One evening we went tubing down the river which was fun but quite cold! Then the walk back to camp afterwards hurt as we had no shoes on (this seems to be a kiwi thing).

I can’t wait for our first proper school group to arrive so I can test out my new skills!

4th Cycle Week 1 Blog by Joanne+Bridget

On the 13th of October, the UKV’s arrived in Accra, Ghana very late at night to join the ICV’s. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we had in-country orientation including a tour of Accra. During our tour, we went to some local art centre and had the chance to buy some local and traditional items. We spent time getting to know each other better and the UKV’s were introduced to some Ghanaian food.

In-Country Orientation Accra

On the 16th, we all left Accra to head for Abrobiano were our placement is based. The journey took a few hours so we arrived in the dark. We were all welcome with many children asking our names, ages and where we were from. We were introduced to our host parents and children and we enjoyed a nice dinner before heading to bed.

Lattitude Ghana at 10 street March in Takoradi

The following day we left for Takoradi as Lattitude was celebrating its 10th anniversary of volunteer work in Ghana. There was a street march throughout the town (jama) with a lot of music, singing and dancing. We later played some football with the other ICS and enjoyed some views of the Takoradi beach. After having some lunch, we made the trip back to Abrobiano.

We carried out our team planning tool the next day and planed out our project in the village.

Lattitude Ghana at 10 was the talk of the week

On Sunday, an awards ceremony was carried out for the anniversary in Takoradi and we had fun with more music and dancing. We were supplied with some refreshments and enjoyed meeting some of the other volunteers of Lattitude. Returning to our host homes, we all enjoyed dinner and a walk around the village at night.

Cape Coast Week 2 by Millicent

The ICS programme is a programme which helps young people develop their personal and social development, it helps in impacting development in developing countries and also helps in the creation of active citizen. That is the aim and objectives of the programme, in 40years we had about 40,000 volunteers. Before global lattitude volunteers was named Gap lattitude. Lattitude has improved over the years through hard work, dedication of volunteers and has really help in developing individuals and the community. Ics football for hope has really helped in developing young talented and less privileged. The second lady of the republic of Ghana heard of our center in Oguaa in cape coast in the central region of Ghana and was delighted. The Oguaa center was established in the year 2001. She donated books to the center[football for hope],she was happy about our work in the center and the community as a whole. Guys any one at all can be part of this project cause is a wonderful experience and a lifetime too.  PLAY SOCCER,PLAY FOR FUN LEARN FOR!

First few days in Cape Coast!

On Monday 13th October, the team gathered at Heathrow to depart for Ghana!

image

We arrived late on Monday evening after a bit of a delay and were greeted by the Lattitude staff. After a hot and sweaty minibus ride to the hotel we then met our Ghanaian counterparts, the In Country Volunteers (ICVs) for the first time. They were so welcoming and friendly!

This was even more evident on Tuesday morning when we got the most incredible welcome tribal dance and performance!

I can’t actually describe in words how amazing it was. In reply, the UK volunteers (UKVs) sang an anthem of our own…. Wonderwall by Oasis!!!

We took another hot and sweaty tour of Accra on the mini bus before lunch which was great, pics below, and this afternoon did some interesting workshops on stereotypes and cultural differences between UK and Ghanaian people. The UKVs and ICVs separately had to write a cultural guide to their own culture, then write down their perceptions of the other group, and then we shared our views. Results below – UKVs responses in block caps and ICVs in the curly nicer writing!!! It was an interesting exercise in culture, perception and compromise. We actually all agreed with each others views in a lot of ways which was funny to the team leaders as apparently the last cycle had a lot of heated debate!

Wednesday 15th was another fun filled day of orientation in Accra! We did workshops on monitoring and evaluation and personal development goals, as well as exploring the benefits and challenges of living with counterpart volunteers and in host homes, from both a Ghanaian and UK perspective.

The most exciting part of the day was being paired with our counterpart volunteer! My ICV partner is Esenam and she is really lovely and fun. She is 23 years old and she is from the Volta Region of Ghana (in the East bordering Togo for you Geographers Emma Clark!). She is the oldest of four siblings, with one brother and two sisters, and she is interested in studying languages and journalism in the future. I am excited to get to know her better as we have already had interesting conversations on family life, religion and our local cultures. Here is the first of many pictures of us!

Today it has been difficult to remember to observe an important Ghanaian custom which is that you never give, receive or eat with your left hand. This is because in Ghana you use your left hand to do dirty things. This is strictly observed and I have been given into trouble three times today for using my left hand! All the UKVs are trying to get used to this change, however now that we are well aware of this custom our grace period with the Ghanaians is over! I have already asked Esenam to help me with remembering this particularly important thing so I don’t cause offence.

We did a fun quiz tonight, our team lost but it was fun as the last part was a team challenge which involved a push up challenge, getting a photo with a giraffe, bringing back a live ant and having two members of your team cross dress……. Results below!!!!!! :O Reuben looks good in my dress does he not?  ;-)

On Thursday, after a workshop on safety, security and health and a lovely last lunch at the Suma Coast Hotel in Accra, both groups departed on the bus to go to Cape Coast and Abrobriano, where we would meet our host families.

image

We were pleasantly surprised to discover that ‘bus’ meant air conditioned coach rather than sweaty minibus!

image

We were dropped off in Cape Coast, our new home, at dusk and each pair were collected by their host families. Esenam and I met Mama Christine Cann, who made us very welcome in her home. She cooked for us and showed us where we could get drinking water and wash ourselves. I drank my first sachet of water – this is a version of purified water which is much more common than bottles here!

image

There is electricity in the house though there was a power cut as soon as we got here and the water only flows sometimes. Mr and Mrs Cann have been so lovely. As soon as I said I was from Scotland Mr Cann started to ask me about the referendum and told me they lived in London for five years in the 1980s.

This is definitely the biggest culture shock so far, but it is good to properly experience the community and standard of living as the young people we wil be working with are from this.community. Conversations with Esenam and the Canns have already made me start to reflect on different ways of being rich, both materially and in happiness/life. I could not have come into and lived in such a different culture without Esenam’s support – she has been amazing and so patient, kind and helpful with me as I learn about a totally new way of life.

On Friday we went to a town along the coast called Takoradi to take part in celebration events for the 10th anniversary of Lattitude in Ghana. This involved a 5am start followed by the return of the sweaty cramped and crazy minibus journey which we are all growing to love to hate!

We did a big parade and leaflet drop through the centre of Takoradi with local schoolchildren and a band which was very lively and fun! The people here are so enthusiastic about song and dance and it is completely infectious… It is one of the many things I have experieced this week which cannot be described well enough in written words.

image

We then played our first football match! A girls match which my team won 3-2 (15min each half in baking midday sun… Gym what??) and it was brilliant fun! Joanne and I were a little sweaty afterwards…..

image

The boys current and alumni volunteers then played a much more serious match!!

Takoradi is pretty and we returned there on Sunday for the final part of the anniversary celebrations.

Wednesday 22nd October- Friday 24th October

On Wednesday afternoon we started making the football goals out of recycled water sachets. Firstly we washed all the sachets then we folded them and cut them into two rings which we later combined to make a chain. This i thought was an incredibly clever and innovative idea because not only does it find a use for old sachets that we would otherwise disposed of but its also a way to create something to help the center and the children. Thursday morning was my culture day which Richard and Lukeman took. Lukeman gave us a presentation on his mother’s tribe the Hausa people which i found very informative, its nice to learn about other people’s culture’s! Richard then spoke about Jamaica as that’s where his family’s from again i found this very informative as most of the stuff i didn’t know! In the afternoon we then continued with making the net by learning how to connect the links to the rope in order to form the skeleton of the net. On Friday we began with restoring the volleyball pitch in the hope to engage girls and boys to come to play volleyball as an alternative to football.

4th Cycle ICS – Week 1

From Benjamin

Both ICVs and the UKVs arrived on the 13th of October, 2014. The ICVs came in the afternoon and the UKVs in the evening. The next day, both sets of volunteers conducted the welcome ceremony. The ICVs displayed different aspects of their culture from three different regions of Ghana – the Akans (Ashanti), Volta and the Northern region.
On the 15th of October we went for a city tour in Accra, during which we visited Independence Square and an African market. We also came across the Flag Staff House, where our president lives.
The same day, we also had sessions which included teamwork, counterpart pairing, and being placed into different host homes. Thursday the 16th of October, we took our departure to Cape Coast. On Friday the 17th, we went to Takoradi for the 10th anniversary of Lattitude, where we had lots of fun on a march through the streets with the local schoolchildren.

Settling in

     So the first month was very challenging language wise. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t had the occasional little breakdown. Although I’m sure there are more yet to come! I was able to socialise at the “welcome party” on Friday. It made me feel so empowered to see a drastic improvement in my Japanese, although it is a mix of broken English and Japanese verbs I slowly hear my Japanese getting better. My partner and I were the first volunteers at the new placement and because of this there are not many English speakers at the hospital, Japanese being much more spoken to me. Although challenging I feel my language skills will only improve!

     We recently went to Kumamoto Castle (one of the most popular tourist site in our area) it was very modern as they had recently rebuilt he original stucture so it was great to see how it would’ve looked. We managed to climb up the 6 flights of stairs, battling the autumn humidity, to make it to top for great views! We made sushi with Masako-san. We braved venturing out on our bicycles even further to reach her house. It was nice to cycle through the slightly more rural parts of Kumamoto. Recently was the “Drunken Horse Festival” it lasted about an hour and there was a long parade of people. It started off quiet but as the parade went on it got louder! The sound of the drums still resonates with me.

     The Japanese really dedicte to the core, there is always something happening, keep in the know and you’ll never get bored on the weekends! Tonight I accompanied the hospital band for dinner (upon deciding I’d join as a singer), the hospital Christmas party was discussed. All in Japanese of course! Being surrounded by the language can be daunting but having good faith and accepting you won’t understand it all is the best mentality to have.

September

Kia Ora!

Nun sind schon 10 Wochen vergangen seit ich Deutschland verlassen habe. Mein Englisch wird immer besser und ich kann mittlerweile schon Diskussionen über Holzlatten und Essenssaal-Dekorationen führen.

Der September 2014 fing für mich mit einem Erste-Hilfe-Kurs an. Mittlerweile mein Dritter offizieller Kurs. Dieser fand in Tauranga statt. Beth und ich sind schon einen Tag früher dorthin gefahren um uns erst die Stadt anzuschauen. Später sind wir dann zu einem Hockey-Platz gefahren auf dem ihr ehemaliges Hockey-Team einen Wettkampf hatte. Wir verbrachten den restlichen Tag und die Nacht bei diesem Team. Es gab am Abend eine Masterchef-Competition ( Küchenchef-Wettbewerb). Die Mädchen wurden in Gruppen eingeteilt und jede Gruppe musste ein Drei-Gänge-Menü zubereiten für sich und die Tester. Ich durfte auch ein Tester sein. An diesem Abend habe ich viele leckere Dinge probieren dürfen. Das beste war eine gefüllte Hühnerbrust. Diese war gefüllt mit Cranberry und Feta.

Das ganze fand in Papamoa statt. Am kommenden Morgen haben Beth, ihre Cousine und ich dort am Strand den Sonnenaufgang beobachtet und die ersten Fußabdrücke in den Sand gemacht.

Am erste Wochenende im September (es war ein extrem schöner sonniger Tag) habe ich meine erste kleine Kayaktour auf dem Campfluss gemacht. Wir waren fünf Jugendliche und sind ca. eine Stunde lang den Fluss/Bach entlang gepaddelt. Wir haben einen Halt bei der „Canadian Silde“ gemacht. Diese Wasserrutsche führt ca. 10 m lang über eine Rampe direkt in den Fluss und man fliegt wortwörtlich ins Wasser. Das war ein Spaß. Ich hoffe ich werde noch öfters das Vergnügen haben die Rutsche zu rutschen.

In der folgenden Woche habe ich erfahren, dass wir am Labourweekend (ein Wochenende im Oktober) eine Gruppe mit 300 behinderten Personen beherbergen. Für diese Gruppe müssen Rampen an allen Eingänge angebracht werden. Diese Rampen warteten nur darauf von mir und einer Mitarbeiterin getestet und markiert zu werden. Wir haben alle Rampen an den Türen angebracht und dann entschieden, ob die Rampen erneuert werden müssen. Danach haben wir alle Rampen beschriftet und wieder in ihr Lager gebracht.

Ich arbeite auch nun immer mehr für verschiedene Abteilungen im Camp.

Wir haben fünf verschiedene Abteilungen: Ministry (Organisation von den großen Programmen, wie Ferien- und Sportfreizeiten), Property (Diese Arbeiter kümmern sich um alle Hausmeisterarbeiten, sowie um alle Grundstücksarbeiten wie Rasenmähen und Bäumefällen), dann gibt es noch das Küchenteam und das Housekeeping (Putzfrauen/Zimmermädchen) Team.

Mein Team ist das Instructionteam. Wir schauen, dass alle Camps gut und sicher ablaufen und betreuen Schulen, Organisationen, Privatpersonen die unser Camp als Veranstaltungsort buchen. Zudem organisieren wir die Aktivitäten für diese Gruppen.

Für das Ministryteam habe ich in den letzten 3 Wochen 250 Umhänge für die anstehenden Feriencamps geschneidert. Wer wissen will, wie man einfach ein Faschingskostüm zum Thema „Superhero“ herstellt, kann mich gerne fragen.

Zudem habe ich ein Kartenspiel mit 200 Karten einlaminiert und schön ausgeschnitten.

Ich habe auch geholfen DVDs von den Sportscamps zu brennen und zu verschicken. Auf diesen DVDs sind Fotos und Videos der Sportscamp-Woche zu sehen.

Es hat sich eingebürgert, dass ich jeden Freitag dem Housekeepingteam helfe. Ich helfe die Zimmer für die nächste Gruppe herzurichten und die Wäsche zu waschen. Man lernt immer wieder etwas dazu. Zum Beispiel wie man in weniger als einer Minute ein Waschbecken und einen Spiegel blitzblank putzt.

In der Küche helfe ich fast jede Woche. Jeder Arbeiter muss einmal den Abwasch machen. Es gibt einen Plan für jeden Monat, wann wer den Abwasch macht.

Ich wurde von meinem Team diesen Monat für die Teamrescue-Aktion und für die Hydroslide trainiert. Beide Aktivitäten darf ich nun alleine Betreuen.

Letzte Woche haben wir das letzte Schul-Sportscamp für dieses Jahr gehabt. Das war echt toll. Ich wusste wie alles abläuft und konnte es echt genießen. Naja leider hat man gemerkt, dass diese Freizeit nach dem Bezirk „King Country“ benannt wurde. Die Manschaften spielten wie im letzten Fleck. Basketballwurde umbenannt zum „ich-versuche-einen-Ball-zu -fangen-und-ihn-in-den-Korb-zu-werfen“-Spiel. Das beste an den letzten beiden Sportscamps im September waren die Helfer aus Auckland (SENZ). Mir wurde eine Frage gestellt über die ich jetzt noch lachen muss.

„Do you speak another language in Germany?“ auf Deutsch: „Spricht man eine andere Sprache in Deutschland?“. Der Helfer fragte mich diese Frage aufgrund meines Akzentes.

Ich wurde auch oft zu Nachbarn zum Spielen, Abendessen oder einfach nur zum Teetrinken eingeladen.

Im September waren zudem die letzten Rugbyspiele der All Blacks(dem neuseeländischen Rugbyteam) in Neuseeland. Traditionell wurden diese im Haus meines Managers (Chef) angeschaut. Jeder bringt eine kleine Sache zum Essen mit und so verbringt man den Abend dann… Beth’s Idee war es eine „Pavlova“ eine neuseeländische/australische Nachspeise zu machen. Ich sollte diese machen. Es ist im Grunde ein Baiser mit Sahne und einigen Früchten. Ich stellte eine echt leckere Pavlova her. Es war nicht schwer, aber wir haben festgestellt, dass unser Ofen gänzlich kaputt ist. Er kann die Hitze nicht halten. Meine Pavlova hatte die perfekte Konsistenz. Der Baiser war „Marshmallow-like“ so wie es sich gehört. Der Boden nicht…..

Unser Backofen wurde die Woche drauf sofort repariert.

Eine Nacht habe ich auch bei einer Kollegin verbracht. Wir hatten einen schönen Abend haben Filme geschaut und eine, Nicht verbrannte!, Pavlova gegessen (diese war aber nicht von mir, sondern von der Küche).

Ich habe an jenem Abend auch den Ehemann unserer Administration-Chefin kennengelernt. Dieser war früher oft aufgrund seiner Arbeit in Deutschland. Und man mag es kaum glauben, er war des öfteren in Wertheim. Das ist echt unglaublich wie klein die Welt manchmal zu sein scheint.

An dem einzigen richtig schönen Sonntag im September, dem 21.9. habe ich Chrissi und Beth (zwei Voluntäre von Lattitude) in Hamilton besucht. Das war schön. Wir waren im größten Einkaufcenter Neuseelands shoppen und haben uns die Hamilton Gardens angeschaut. Diese Gärten sind in einem Park nahe des Waikatorivers angelegt und nach Themen gebaut. Es gibt den Japan-Garten, den China-Garten oder einfach nur einen Obstgarten. Es waren ungefähr 20 Gärten und wir waren nur im ersten Teil des Parks. Am Besten gefallen hat mir der indische Garten. Dort schossen die Frühlingsblumen nur so aus dem Gelände.

Diesen Monat habe ich auch eine Karte der Nordinsel von Neuseeland mit allen Orten, welche ich gerne Besuchen würde, fertiggestellt. Meine ersten Pläne für so manche Wanderungen wurden von dem schlechten Wetter der letzten drei Wochenenden leider weggeschwemmt.

Das letzte Wochenende habe ich aber so einiges davon nachgeholt. Ich fuhr nach Rotorua. Die Schwefelstadt. Dort besuchte ich „Te Puia“. Es ist ein nachgebautes Maoridorf inmitten eines der aktivsten Geothermalgebiete Neuseelands. Dort gibt es hunderte von heißen Quellen und Mudpools (Schlammbädern) alle sind kochend heiß. Es hatte überall Qualm und Roch nach faulen Eiern. Aber man gewöhnt sich daran. Das Highlight waren die Geysire. Ich habe noch nie Geysire in Real-life gesehn und dort gleich fünf auf einem Haufen. Der berühmteste von ihnen ist der Pohutu-Geysir. Er spritzt alle 40 Minuten 25-30 Meter in die Höhe. Ich habe mir ihn gleich drei-Mal angesehen. Es war unbeschreiblich.

Diese Woche geht es nun los mit den Feriencamps. Hier in Neuseeland haben die Frühlingsferien begonnen. Mit einer Zeitumstellung. Es sind nun 11 Stunden nach Mitteleuropa.

Mal sehen wie das losgeht. Ich werde die nächsten zwei Wochen in einer Kabine wohnen und eine Gruppe von jeweils 6 Kindern betreuen. Normalerweise macht das kein normaler Arbeiter sondern es kommen immer sogenannte Leaders. (Meist Jugendliche aus anderen Camps). Jedoch haben wir dieses Jahr einen Mangel an diesen freiwilligen Helfern, somit wurde beschlossen dass ich auch in einer Kabine verbringe. Ich bin schon gespannt…

Und zum Schluss: Ein gaaaaanz großes Dankeschön an alle, die mir Postkarten und  Päckchen geschickt haben! Ich habe mich sehr darüber gefreut!

Und hier sind Bilder!
