My husband and I recently returned home after four weeks in Nkope, Malawi. We met incredibly inspiring people, both in the village and in the volunteers residence. The work involved setting up a new preschool incorporating the principles of holistic, child led and play based learning. We thoroughly enjoyed the work, even on the most challenging of days. We felt supported by the NAV staff who worked with us to overcome some of the obstacles we faced along the way. Our outlook on life has been altered, and we hope that we will never again be complacent about the myriad of blessings and abundance in our lives, since we have been immersed in and surrounded by the kindness, generosity and resilience of the Malawian people. We hope to return to Nkope in the not too distant future. Thanks to all at NAV!
