Our new sitemate Jasmin gets here tomorrow. Welcome Jasmin! This year the annual calendar changed from one incoming group of volunteers (education and health sectors together) to two groups, education arriving in October (like I did) and health arriving in June. Thus, all health sites that were to be replaced (like Ann’s) had two options: not be replaced for 9 months, or have two volunteers overlap for 3 months. So the next three months will be a little cozy for both Jasmin and Ann in their house, and it will be a little difficult for both of them to find work with their organizations. Luckily, Ann has her four REDES groups and her JOMA group, and she will start coming out to my school to help with the extra-curricular activities I am running.
