An African Reading Club in Australia

G’day from wintry Melbourne. I am now past the halfway  mark  through my assignment with Save the Children Australia. When I first told my friends that I was doing a Pulse Assignment in Australia most people raised their eyebrows and looked a bit surprised. Do Australians need help from NGOs? I guess the normal man on […]

Hôpital FANN. August 25


À première vue, il s’agit peut-être d’un terme douteux, considérant l’état du monde actuel.  C’est pourtant le seul mot qui me revenait en tête.  Je me suis demandé à quelques reprises si ce mot était « approprié ». Mais plus j’y réfléchissais et plus le temps passait, ce terme s’imposait.  Je vivais une véritable explosion des sens, […]

My lil friend …. Bhutu 

My father used to always say   – at the heart of life lies the relationship we have with other people,  close by or may be far away at the other side of the world. It is also important that how you let these relationships flow and grow . I am a strong believer of […]

Hôpital FANN. August 25


It may sound like an odd choice of a word – explosion. Especially in the troubled world we live in. It really was the only word that kept coming back to me, and I certainly wondered if this was an “appropriate” choice. But the more I thought about it, and the longer it took to […]

Go Slow to Go Fast

  It has been an interesting couple of weeks in Zambia. We have faced the election of a new president. This has proved to have some noteworthy times, as there is conflict between the two parties and accusations of rigging etc. I followed the strong advice I was given from reliable sources to stay indoors […]

An African-American in Africa — Robin in Rwanda

I’ve been “writing” this particular blog for weeks.  I had the feelings, but either I didn’t have the words or I had too many words: Awe, pride, love, wonder, happiness,  anger, fear, hope.  How could I feel all of these things, sometimes at once, I wondered.  And how do I express them?  Then I came […]
