I kicked off my stay in Arusha with meeting with the secondary school up the street from Peace Matunda. I sat down with the principal and a few of the teachers to describe what my plan was. I told them that I am interested in teaching the basics of volleyball to the entire school, around 400 students, and from the students whoever seems slightly interested in learning more I will teach more to on the volleyball court.
I was shocked but excited to learn that no one knew what volleyball was. I felt compelled to give everything I had to make sure at least one of those kids had a chance to learn. After a couple hours of meeting up at the school and finding the kids that were interested I gave a presentation of the basics, then everyday the kids would come down after school to the volleyball court that was created for this camp and learn to play. Here is just one of the photos taken after one of my class room teachings on what volleyball is.
