Here in Field Base we often go to the local school in Jayapura, the village next to us, to do medical sessions through a programme we have set up with the school called Little Doctors. This expedition we have expanded this, and at the weekend a few of us headed over to the school to take an English lesson with the 10th Standard students who are studying in their final year.
As well as some Grammar and pronunciation exercises, we also did some tongue twisters with the 100 students in the class - very amusing for both us and them!
So, a quick update of how all the groups are getting on, Charlie 1 and 2, Echo 3 and Tango 5 are all on the final few days of their projects.
We are looking forward to them arriving back at Field Base on Wednesday afternoon for a slightly longer change over period of 3 days, before they all deploy for their final phases on Saturday morning!
Keep an eye out this weekend and I will update on how change over is going!
Mike 2 are doing great in BD Munti and have been working really hard at finishing all 14 toilets! A couple of us from Field Base are heading over tomorrow for their inauguration ceremony of the toilets, so we will do a quick update with some photographs and messages from the group once we are back!
