Flaviana Minde, 39, home economics teacher at the VETA in Mwanza, is for her first time outside Africa. She is still reminiscent of the difficulties of recent days. “It’s been a tough time for the young women, but they have not ceased to believe in the success of their adventure. What do they expect from their stay in Germany? Everything here should turn around accurate timekeeping;. I‘m curious to see how that will work,” “What do you want to?” “I will get to know everyday German food, I would like to get to know a normal hotel. And I‘m looking forward to the many Church bells that can be heard in Würzburg.

Kinabo Joyce, 39, her colleague, expresses her expectations: I want to see how you live. And here are so many museums, I want to see them all. I have no fears. Yes you take so much care for us.” Se visited Canada three years ago. Since February, she switched to a hotel school to Entebbe in Uganda.
