“It’s like a vacation.”
“It’s like a vacation. We don’t have our home responsibilities, and we get to relax and just hang out together.”
For our Little Ripples Teacher Training here in Batouri, Cameroon, the participating teachers and cooks have all been staying together in a dormitory at the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) compound; the same property where Kelsey and I are also staying. Every evening, from my room, the romantic sound of crickets is overpowered by the roar of laughter coming from the dormitory. I love it. It makes me feel so happy to hear them having fun together, and so this evening, on their final night, I figured I’d go see for myself the happenings at the dormitory.
