Unexpected resources

There may be resources that materialize unexpectedly. We thought we should mention a few of which we took advantage just so you could be on the lookout for them.

1. A group of African students who were on a field trip from the University of New Mexico were invited by us to have dinner with the trainees. For many of the trainees, this was their first encounter with Africans.

2. Returned Volunteers visited us on a Saturday evening and brought slides of Africa.

3. A former Peace Corps staff member with experience in Africa joined us for an evening session.

4. A British visitor came to see a staff member and graciously taught a Swahili class.
