Doro and Leonie are the new weltwärts volunteers in Okakarara and have been in the project since mid-August. Here they report how their week goes like this:

This week, of course, sport was back in the morning and today there were really many children (almost 40). After our usual start (running around the house, balancing, jumping, circle) we sang a few songs. Started with "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands" and many more such as the "steps song" and the Namibian national anthem. It was great fun, the children love to sing and don't want to stop at all. The teachers at steps were also very active and we had a great start to the morning!

In the afternoon it was AfterSchoolCare again. After doing the homework with the kids, we went to the art room with Marlene and did some handicrafts and drawings. This week was all about elephants. We got detailed instructions from Marlene on how to draw elephants and then painted and cut them out with charcoal.

Every day at the end of the afternoon activity there is the cookie round. Each child is asked a question and if they answer it correctly, they receive a cookie. Since the children really have great difficulties with 1 × 1 (even in the 7th grade!), It is mostly small math problems, but English translations or general knowledge (e.g. the capital of Namibia) are also requested.
