“This was a volunteer’s last day in her teaching programme in Brazil, receiving the traditional “group hug” from the students.
Cheryl came with the purpose of teaching volleyball in one of our projects, but she has also taught so many other issues and brought so much fun to the students that they all fell in love with her.
A Big Thank You to Cheryl Harbinson, who has shown students the importance of sports in their lives and how to have fun with them, and for exchanging so much knowledge with the local teachers.
You’ve made the difference!”
Here is a weblink for the project she volunteered on: https://travellersworldwide.com/brazil/brazil-fl-sports.aspx

Volunteer name: Shannon Brown
Volunteer placement: Teach Delightful Children in Borneo, Malaysia
1. What is the best thing about your placement so far?
The people I have met along the way. All the villagers are so friendly, they will stop and say hello without even knowing who you are. The teachers in the school have been amazing, so very welcoming and encouraging throughout my time at the school. My host family have been great, they have welcomed me into the family and have tried to accommodate around everything I have hoped to do, and of course the students. Every morning they will come running up and say “hi teacher”, they wave out their classroom doors and go out their way to see you just so they can say hello and after school they will always say goodbye before going home. I have also seen some of them out of school in the supermarket or in the village town and they will shout “hi teacher” from far away. It really has been amazing.

2. In your time there so far, has there been anything happened that has stood out?
There has been so many things which have stood out and will remain with me forever. Whether it be a boy in the primary 1 class who for the first few days ran about the class and refused to do any work yet by the end of the week he was fully invested in his learning and did the best work out of the whole class or the wee boy the following week who I was told could not speak a work of English but at the end of the week answered a question which showed the impact I was helping to create. The student with additional support needs who at the end of a week of teaching ran up and gave me a hug and handed me a picture which he had drawn or the girl who finally started to understand what she was doing after trying for so long and she was so pleased with herself and I helped make that happen.

3. What experiences do you think you are gaining?
I have gained so many different experiences while in Malaysia, for a start I am teaching young children English every day. Gaining more experience working with young children in a school environment and working with others whose first language is not the same as my own. I gaining experience on being adaptable, thinking on my feet and being flexible to changing circumstances. I am gaining confidence in my own ability to teach and work with students and teachers. But most importantly I am gaining experience working and living in a culture which is different to my own, helping me to become more diverse and knowledgeable about the world which we live in.

4. Any other relevant comments
I am extremely grateful that I was given the opportunity to be part of this programme as it is something which really has helped me to become more confident and helped me stay driven to my future goals. This experience so far really has been incredible and has taught me so much about myself and this part of the world.

"Two years on since member governments of the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora agreed on measures to halt cheetah trafficking in the GCC, little has changed.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature categorises the cheetah as a “vulnerable” animal, just one step below “endangered”, in its red list of threatened species.

There are estimated to be fewer than 7,000 cheetahs in existence in the wild across the globe. Since 2016, 34 cheetahs have been offered for sale in the UAE on Instagram.

The most recent advertisement reported by animal welfare groups appeared on Instagram on June 30. Advertisements are also placed on Facebook and other social media channels. Prices range between Dh35,000 for two cats and Dh50,000 for one animal" https://www.thenational.ae/uae/cheetahs-sell-for-tens-of-thousands-on-gold-mine-social-media-accounts-across-middle-east-1.755430
