I started my saving up job a few months ago in a care home. I had l experienced during my work, but I would like to share with you a special one.
I would like to share a story about our study travel with the care home to St. Vincent.
During the time when we were in St. Vincent, we visited families and local places, we talked, played and made different projects with the local people.
When we reached the town for the first time, I was excited and scared at the same time. Going out to know local people and hear their stories is a unique feeling. But when I saw these nice people, who are friendly and happy even though you are a stranger, it was a pleasant feeling.
I was visiting a woman in Chateaubelair who lives there alone with her daughter. They are working in the school as cooks. During the time when I was there, we talked a lot, we shared our experiences about education, about living conditions in St. Vincent and about the community. All I heard I also experienced by walking in this town. The people are living in a strong community with many nice people inside. Luckily, I had a chance to see how the local people are playing cricket in the main square. This time the main square was full of people, who were enjoying their time together.
Another nice experience was our project in an elementary school. We were building tables for them and planting trees. This little school had around 30-50 students. They were learning together even though some of them had just started the school now and others were in the 4th grade. They were really talkative, active and helpful with the planting. We had the nice time together with them, taught them how to plant a tree and how to take care of it. I hope they are going to remember and take good care of the trees.
I have no words to write down how thankful I am for this great study travel and how happy I am to have a chance to meet with these amazing people. My mother always told me - „don’t talk to strangers”, but I am happy that I did not listen to her!
