In the first few days we spent organizing the room and then starting some classes to gauge an interest and to find the problems so we could run effective classes in the time frames for each day.
For at 9 we would work with 17 yrs plus, generally people how have left school. In the early and late afternoons the ages would vary and also English language would also be a factor. Over the week we would continue classes and try and find the issues that we would need to over come in phase 2.
I’m delighted to say that Calvin has headed back with two amazing volunteers who have been working (fundraising and supporting) on building out an effective timetable and platform for the next month. Dylan and Sarah both worked in Google and left their jobs to continue on their careers and travel. Before starting they decided to go to the camp teach some classes.
We hope phase to start in the Summer 2020 and after that we will try to build this ‘Module’ to take to other camps in the area.
There are almost 12000 people in this camp and its the smallest in the area.
