When I first came to Namibia, I was very sceptic. I was afraid I wouldn't like it here, and 3 months is a long time thinking about it, but after a week, I adapted and found my place here. Then I realised how grateful I was, and how I surprised myself by loving this place. It was a hard time for me going back to Norway.
The work was very challenging and sometimes I even wanted to give up, but looking back, I can see the kids development and how they growth which I can't even describe with words. Words are empty in a situation like this.
It was nice having a company as Namintern which greeted us at the airport, wishing us welcome. It's also nice having people that you can contact for everything and whenever you need. That gave me a feeling of security and being safe. It can be hard coming to a new country not knowing where to go or what to do in difficult times, but having people that you can contact is a big relief and is very helpful.
