Lemorah Benbow , Servas Malawi
Report about the Servas Africa Regional and Youth Meeting, Kampala, Uganda
"This was my 2nd Servas conference - I went to my 1st in Uganda, in 2011 when I was 8 years old - 11 years ago! I remember it well jumping up and down in the Ruwenzori Mountains with my mum and sister.
At this conference I was 17years old and it was very different. I didn’t just do Indian Dancing as directed by mom and play outside. Now I had to organize and do things myself. I couldn’t wait for people to say ok, I just got on with it. Yes I want to be a doer like my mom – annoying or not. I put up our display on Malawi and I organized the quiz which turned out to be quite fun in the end for people. (Francis I did it, you taught people the guitar! We each had different strengths and made a good team.) I was surprised how, as a group, we were all able to discuss things and not just passively listen to the leader. Good atmosphere!"
