"This memoir hits all the familiar chords of living in Africa, affirming that personal connections make a difference in struggling communities, but it’s so detailed that only family and perhaps other volunteers headed to the region are likely to read to the end. Drama is sorely lacking in the exhaustive, mundane recitations of her life."

Synopsis

This story describes a short period of my life when I left behind my husband and family to take up an assignment with the New Zealand Volunteer Service Abroad. This organisation employed me to work in Zimbabwe from 2002 to 2004, a difficult time in that country's history. For me, it was a life-changing experience that a decade later I feel compelled to share. I have used the diaries I kept during my time there and also drawings to convey the lasting memories of the people I met and my experiences working and living alongside them.
