06 May 2019 – This is an imported page from an old blog I kept during my travels to Malawi. Next month (June 2019) as part of this year’s Norwich-Dedza Partnership exchange, teachers from Malawi will be visiting the UK. So in celebration and preparation for that, I will be re-blogging the thoughts I made during my visit in 2013.
You can find an index of all the 2013 Malawi blog entries here. Zikomo!
“The Norwich-Dedza Partnership”
8th May 2013; Norwich, UK
My journey to Malawi is part of the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. This partnership is a cultural exchange between the two cities, involving to-and-fro visits by educators, social workers, development workers and the like.
I came to be aware of the Norwich-Dedza Partnership through two work colleagues, Joc Mack and Judy Jones. Two amazingly dedicated people who are passionate about working with youngsters. Joc and Judy asked my help to incorporate links with students, particularly through extra-curricular activities and within the curriculum itself. More about that later, but for now, please do take the time to look at the Norwich-Dedza Partnership’s website.
Chichewa – Thanks!
