Tonbridge Team Three arrive in Manyenje

The team's first proper day in Malawi and it started with a nice breakfast at Fisherman's Rest then the drive to Manyenje Village where lots of smiling faces greeted the girls on arrival.

After some on-site orientation and games in their new home, the team met Malawian Field Officer Stevie and had a huge welcome ceremony from the village community.

The chief even got his speakers out and the whole village enjoyed a boogie before watching Manyenje football team take on another village in front of a huge crowd.

It's an early night tonight as the whole team is so impressed by the amount achieved by tgs 1 and 2 - they are excited to get cracking in the morning.

Ps the classroom can be seen in the back right of the photo below. It's looking amazing!
