Daniel I'm having an amazing time here in the Brazilian rainforest. We arrived from Macapá two weeks ago. There are ten students and we are staying with families in the village. We're helping to build a new school. And we're trying to study Portuguese, but it isn't easy!
Christine I'm here in Cape Town, South Africa. I'm staying with my aunt and
uncle. I'm working at a school in one of the townships outside the city. I teach English to young children. They are very poor, but they are always laughing. It's hard work, but the children are wonderful.
Thomas I live in London and I'm working in an old people's home in the city centre. There are fifty people living here. Some of them are quite sick. I help them read their letters, books and newspapers. I also help at mealtimes, and take people out for walks. It's hard work, but very rewarding.
