During my time in Malawi, I tried my hand at volunteering abroad in Africa for the first time. I’ve always been a bit apprehensive about volunteering – especially when children are involved. I was always worried about the experience being too much about me and not really beneficial to these sweet young minds.
When I first heard about NYM and met the people who run it, I fell in love though and decided to give it a try. I had a fantastic experience and in this vlog will show you some of the highlights. I was more focused on being in the moment and less focused on filming the entire adventure. But I hope this still gives you a good sense of what I got up to in Ruarwe where this charity and after school club is based.
If you have any questions about volunteering in Africa – or in general – please leave them in a comment below. If you’re interested I’d love to do a follow up video about volunteering, talking about good and bad practice.
To find out more about NYM and the NGO I volunteered with, head to https://phunzira.org. They’re always looking for help and would love to hear from you!
