Last day on project site

Yesterday was another amazing day for the team out in Chilingani. 
They spent most of the day on site and rushed back for a drama rehearsal - the play is coming along nicely!
The Malawian participants are really shining and the Hurst students are even learning their lines in Chichewa! The group also spent some time practicing a song for their leaving ceremony tomorrow. 
In the afternoon Rosa facilitated a workshop in Makaton (simple sign language) for Alice, a deaf girl in the community. The Hurst students and the local community took part and learnt how to communicate with Alice.
Yesterday evening the volunteers prepared their present for the community, which is a photo book, which they will present today.
Today is their last day in the community and I'm sure there will be some sad goodbyes.
