My visit to Mbando village
By Chikondi Andrew Kamvazakazi
I will never forget that overwhelming feeling of joy and accomplishment that my team and I felt as we were launching an E-learning center at Chirimba secondary school in Mbando village. I have been a volunteer for Abundance close to a year now and the journey thus far has been a mixture of rich learning experiences. From being an online volunteer, I got appointed as an acting secretary for Abundance. I have learned through this experience in particular that helping others can be just as rewarding for the individuals receiving the services as those per forming it.
My visit at Mbando village was worthwhile experience, that will remain in my memory forever. The community were very friendly and supportive especially our host family was incredible and made our stay comfortable. From interacting with youth that are benefiting with an E-learning center, the experience with them was very enriching and full of learning. I was so inspired seen how youth have been empowered by learning through videos on best agriculture practices and applying them in their gardens. The have learnt how to make soap and re-usable sanitary pads that they can sell at a local market. Through a discussion on climate change and access to information that I facilitated, I realized the potential that these young group have in as far as solving of social-ecological problems in their community is concerned.

The place where we once called home is always calling us and that is the only thing that we must not forget so that we may able to know the true meaning of the world and have the bigger purpose in life. A purpose that will enable us to do greater things and be the better person in this modern world. I will visit my village, a village where people are so kind and they are filled with love. I will save some money for me to go here once again.
