Well it is the end of our first week here in Malawi. Our first group of students in Mzuzu have now completed their 2 days on the mentor preparation programme and now heading back to their home areas in the Northern region to complete their portfolios in order to become mentors as well as train future mentors.
It has been a great 2 days working with our tutor colleagues here in Malawi. Many of the discussions taking place during these days were comparable to discussions we have at home -issues with student placements; student challenges; resource challenges. Of course the circumstances behind the issues here are vastly different.
Liz and I have enjoyed our 2 days delivering the workshop. Tomorrow we head back to Lilongwe for one night before we head south to Blantyre to deliver the workshop to tutor colleagues in the south.
We will keep you posted of our progress here in Malawi. I’m sure the next week will pass quickly and we will be back with you all in next to no time.
