Volunteers

Rockers Leon and Jan made from car tyres

Jan and Leon from Germany are at the end of their one year tenure. They have made a major contribution to BI. We have often called on their computer expertise (that young people that age seem to have!) and they have managed to get us out of some sticky fixes. Being so remote BI appreciates any help that is on hand.

A big achievement was sorting out the logistics of setting up the Maths Buddies programme in the local Primary School (No-ofisi). The challenge was electricity, space, time, internet… and having to haul the computers out of storage each session and set up the electricity, log on… And they have managed very well.

They also have been running physical training from Monday to Thursday at Xhora Mouth Primary School. They introduced Hand Ball which is popular in Germany, and took a team to Coffee Bay to compete with primary schools there.

Each rocker is used in a different way and makes children aware of their centre of gravity.

Leon and Jan will be followed by two new volunteers, Paul and Moritz also from Germany.
