14W group shot

After a week of induction the volunteers have found out what teams they will be in and which communities they will be working alongside. They have now travelled to their respective villages and have begun to integrate with their local communities.

Each week we will be asking selected groups to write a feature blog, and providing a general update for all other teams.  Next week we will be hearing from Teams Batini, Ndebwe and Mingara to find out what progress they have made in their first week and how the community will be involved in the campaigns.
