Go! Malawi
April 19, 2011

I have now been to Malawi with FLFH twice. I went back in Summer 2008 for 3 weeks and then went back Summer 2010 and spent 2 months. I left the first summer knowing that I would always want to go back and do my part teaching English and continue to inform surrounding areas of HIV/AIDS. The people of Malawi are the nicest people in the world, after all it is the warm heart of Africa! These kids take everything they could possibly get from you. Every time they sit on your lap, get a hug or kiss, they embrace. They remember every moment spent with you and I learned that when I returned. Everyone remembered me.

The best thing about these kids is that they want to learn. They ask questions, and spend extra time for help. I hope to return to Malawi in the near future for a 3rd time and I know it will even be better than the last two.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The results of the English program. When I first went it was near impossible to talk to any of the orphans, but the 2nd time around it was amazing how much better there English got. These kids are committed to learning this language.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would try not to change too much. It is great. Maybe have less trips so volunteers could spend more time at the orphanage!
