We settled in Blantyre / Malawi for 4 weeks to support different projects of Servas Malawi.
In June we approached Demelza Benbow, Servas Malawi very resourceful National Secretary, to offer our help . She sent us back a 4 weeks (!) schedule with multiple projects to join forces. – Look out for upcoming posts.
While working on the projects we stay with local hosts who have little to none experience hosting foreign travelers. It is a great opportunity for us to encounter Malawi hospitality and learn about Malawian culture and contemporary life. We contribute by giving a PowerPoint presentation about our Los Angeles life to our hosts, cook, bake and share meals with the families, visit our host’s work places and join them in social activities.
