Our Second Opening Day!
Published: August 6, 2019
Sabah il khair, Al-Wāḥa! Today marked the arrival of our second set of two-week villagers! We were all very excited to see some returning villagers as well as some new faces!
Upon their arrival, villagers were led through several stations including a name-choosing station, a bitaaqa (name tag) station, the nurse's station, the bank, the dukkan (store), customs, and a language exam station. What distinguished this opening day from the previous one is that our credit villagers took charge and led the new two-week villagers through the stations.
In the evening program, villagers visited several stations to give them more informatin about safety rules and expectations for different places at Al-Wāḥa.
And a demonstration at the dukkan:
Following this informative evening program, we headed to the campfire, and then to bed!
Thank you for reading! We'll see you tomorrow!
