Non-adults are also welcome

Vincent travels about four hours by bus each way to teach an adult literacy class, getting little more than his expenses paid. He’s been doing this for over a year. Dressed smartly in shirt and tie or a neat little waistcoat, he travels all that way – and we’re talking jam-packed, speedy swerving minibuses here – partly because he enjoys the change of scene, but also because he was helped in his own education, and wants to do the same for others now.

He stays overnight in a cheap guesthouse, and returns the next day to his own village, where he runs his own projects in primary and vocational education; he also wants to do something to help elderly people and something else to tackle youth violence. He’s also fluent in French and German, and would like to find penpals for his pupils – maybe some who can communicate in a few languages…
