[:from]

A few months or a year as a volunteer in Gobabis or Okakarara or as an intern in Hamburg at steps for children. And then? When and where do you see the people again, with whom you have spent so much time and discovered so many new things?

Steps answers the question for you: in October in Hamburg. steps has invited former volunteers who have just come back from Namibia or who have been here for a year or who have just completed an internship at steps for children in Hamburg.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On October 26 and 27, 2016, Namibia volunteers and Hamburg interns were guests on the Elbe. After the warm welcome from Michael Hoppe and Simone Damak in the steps headquarters, one thing was done above all over vetkoekies and coffee: talking about the time in Namibia and at steps. The program included the exchange of personal experiences, cooperation with steps, criticism and feedback, and the gathering of ideas for steps.

However, this workshop was only the beginning of the weekend in the cold October north. Get out of the steps office and head for the Elbe, Altona, have a leisurely meal and finish off with the brunch marathon on Sunday morning. The exciting thing about this weekend was that some of them had never seen each other, but still had so much in common. Of course, a lot of the discussions revolved around Namibia, but also about what concerns us now. It remains for everyone this special connection, knotted in the distance and knotted in the home.

As flat as it sounds, it's true:

Reunion makes friends.

On 26 and 27 October 2016 Namibia volunteers and Hamburg trainees were then guests on the Elbe. After the warm welcome by Michael Hoppe and Simone Damak in the steps headquarters was at vetkoekies and coffee, especially one made: talking about the time in Namibia and in steps. The exchange about their own experiences, the cooperation with steps, criticism and feedback, and brainstorming for steps on the program.

However, this workshop was just the prelude to the weekend in october cold north. Walk Out of the steps-office and from the River Elbe, Altona, go eat comfortably and Sunday morning nor ending brunch marathon. The exciting thing about this weekend was that you had some never seen, but so much in common. Of course, many conversations were to Namibia, but also to that which now occupies us. It remains for this particular connection, knotted in the distance and knotted in the home.

It floored sounds, but it's true nevertheless:

Good bye friends.
