Volunteering in Medan

By Zhuang Zhuo, Volunteer, IHF Medan

It has been a week when I arrived in Medan and I’m gradually getting used to life here. It’s lucky to make friends with our super nice director Louise and friendly local volunteers and teach those cute students here. Although I teach only two to three hours one day, I could feel the passion of kids and want to be closer with them. In spare time, we play games together and talk about culture of this city. I do learn a lot from these kind and active kids.
untitledIt is the national holiday of Muslim these days, so we do not have many classes. However, it became a good chance for me to experience traditional Muslim culture and enjoy local food. We visited several kids’ homes at holiday and learned local traditions and practices. Students’ families were very kind and we could also communicate well though there is a language problem. It is an interesting and unusual experience.
