Better Late than Never

26 Feb

Hey all, sorry for my lack of updates lately! I have been having a difficult time since the holidays, and have definitely been feeling a little homesick and more than a little unmotivated. There hasn’t been a lot of work for me to do at my organization which was very frustrating for me, but finally things are starting to pick up. I have a few small projects to work on and I have been able to attend a few regional forum on the organization’s behalf. A lot of what I am doing is preparing material for the organization once funding comes in. For example, I am designing a gender workshop with many different sessions (sexual health, domestic violence, alcohol and values and norms to name a few) so that when I am gone, they have all the necessary materials to facilitate the workshop. 

Apart from work, I am definitely feeling a lot more at home here in Ghanzi. I have made a good group of friends and feel like I am starting to fit in better socially. It definitely makes a difference when you get invited to parties, to baby showers and other social events! I am also getting SUPER excited about my upcoming vacation with Heather and Kelsey to Namibia and Cape Town!
