Volunteers at the Centre
We have had two volunteers from Spain in the past weeks;
Amparo a software engineer and Joan a Professor of Chemistry who purposed to take on early retirement to be able to come back to the Kitega Centre.
Amparo worked with the children and staff while Joan has focussed on the deaf children to improve on their numeracy and has also been to the local schools showing different experiments to primary pupils with basic science.
“The beauty of visiting the Centre, you learn and experience a lot of different thing first, how to use some tools” says Joan.
Linda Hopper is currently conducting counselling sessions for selected community members and will soon end her year long volunteering at the Kitega Centre at the start of December 2019.
Thank you so much!!! A happy new month.
