Video Tour of Alyssa’s Home in Malawi
Hi EWB Grand River ~
As EWB African Program Staff we are strongly encouraged to take some time to experience rural life and better understand the realities of the people we are working for. I’ve spent the last two months living in Andrea Jere Village, just outside of Mzimba Malawi. Here’s a brief tour of my family’s home, to hopefully share a little window into my experience.
My favourite parts of this video are the obvious improvement in commentary as my brother Andrew takes over from my bumbled attempt, and Amama’s slightly prompted, but genuinely friendly, wave at the very end of the clip. Enjoy warming up from the Canadian winter with some warm Malawian hospitality! Just click this wmv video link: My Malawian Home .
