Olivia Volunteer in Lusaka, Zambia

Olivia Volunteer in Lusaka, Zambia | "#Volunteer Abroad Information: Volunteering, Airlines, Countries, Pictures, Cultures" | Scoop.it

Traveling to Zambia I had little idea of what to expect. What I
couldn't have guessed is that in 5 short weeks I would make such great
connections with people and so many memories. The people you get to
work with within the main office and phenomenal, talented, and driven.
Lusaka itself is a bustling, traffic filled modern city with Zambian
culture on every corner. While they have western-style malls &
shopping areas, the ideal of the true market is still very much alive
in Zambia. If you get a chance to, spend a little time negotiating
downtown & enjoy the experience, although understand the currency here beforehand! People here are incredibly kind & will go out of their way
to help you. Trust me, if you get lost, it is easy to find someone who
will point you in the right direction or even walk you to your
intended destination. I'm speaking from very personal experience, as I
managed to always be incorrect by one or two bus stops off when I
adventured off by myself. And I found I met incredibly interesting
people off the beaten path, especially when traveling in Livingstone.
The other volunteers you run into all have amazing stories &
experience you can learn from. Additionally, I found my conversations
with Olivia, Josephat, their family, and my peers in the office were
the most revealing about the similarities and differences in culture,
everyday life, and expectations. I really felt like a friend in their
home by the time I left, instead of some stranger who had appeared on
their doorstep 5 weeks before.
It's amazing to give freely of your time & any expertise to people who
are so welcoming. Additionally, the offices and departments we worked
with were incredibly forthcoming and receptive to change. When meeting
with prison officials, community members, or even government
representatives the underlying feeling was that everyone was
contributing to make everyone's, even the sometimes forgotten
prisoners, a little bit better. It was a refreshing way to look at
change!  I don't know if the work I did while I was in Zambia will be
able a significant contribution, but I know I loved getting the chance
to experience their culture. I know the country, the people; even the
calmness has truly touched my life. I wouldn't trade my experience for
anything, and I am so thankful to A Broader View for giving me the chance to be in Zambia!
