Nhlangano Day #4

Meet my boss, Nelly for the first time, it is her first day on the job. The previous Program Manager was promoted and she was promoted to replace her. She is new to Nhlangano also

Sit through a workshop for the caregivers about TB and how HIV makes people easy targets. Of course, it was almost completely in siSwati except for the all of the powerpoint presentation was in English.

And my computer skills proved to be very helpful when the speaker couldn't get the computer to talk to the projector. I changed an option, reset everything and it worked. They said I just proved that I was given a correct name. Sibusiso means "Blessed"

The intros just keep coming

Begin House/Apt hunting. Cause I need to be living in town. The Peace Corp wants us to integrate with our community but living outside of town is proving to be the wrong idea. All parties are working on a new option.
