Banha and Tanta
Dean Anita Stalter, Professor of Spanish Dean Rhodes and I traveled north of Cairo to the cities of Banha and Tanta. Hannah is working with kindergarten children at the Salaam School in Banha. She assists English teachers by pronouncing words, playing games, and simply spending time with the children. Melissa and Nora are also working with young children at the Salaam school in Tanta. In addition to describing their work at school they reported about an active social life with the school’s teaching staff. Our time in Tanta was limited and thus the only pictures are from a meal with administrators at the school. We were delighted to have MCC volunteer Jennifer Linder join us for the day. She is a teacher in Tanta and was very instrumental in organizing these service assignments.
