SERHAT from TURKEY
A) “I wanted to change my education direction and started to look for other programmes where I could learn new skills and travel to new places. When I found this programme, I found it very different and interesting compared to other programmes.”
A) “At the moment, I am working in the same field as I did during the first year of the programme. I took part in many practical actions, working together on buildings, painting and general maintenance for example. During the period in Malawi, I learned skills, like teaching, farming, planning and running a project. What is more, I gained necessary experience both as a leader and working in a team, developing my self-confidence, ability to multitask and to be flexible.”
Q) What project did you work in? What was your responsibility? What did you archive?
A) “I worked in Amalika in the Teacher Training College as a Core Group Teacher in Malawi. My responsibility was preparing courses, organizing, participating in meetings and working with youth clubs. During the project, I had a very good relationship with my co-teachers and students who were friendly and warm. From this experience, I learned Malawian culture, politics and people’s challenges in rural and urban places.”
Q) Has your programme influenced your decisions for your future?
A) ” Yes, it has. After the programme, I decided to continue working with what I have learned from all of the experiences. It was a life-changing experience where I developed myself and discovered what I want to do in the future.”
