The first 3 months in village I’m not going to be doing any projects really. My primary tasks are to learn the language, learn culture, make friends and integrate into my community. I’m excited and nervous. I scored Intermediate High on my language exam! Woohoo! That is better than what I needed in order to be cleared to go to post. Get it Laura!
The basic set up for the next 2 years will be to spend about a month in the bush, in my village, then 4 days in Zinder city at the hostel. Plus some vacations at some point and visits to other volunteers and a 4 week technical training after the first 3 months.
