Challenging, but great project experience in Belo, Cameroon

I spent three months in Belo, Cameroon in order to plan and give a workshop on plastic awareness. The workshop was a community project which I raised funds for before my trip. All in all, it was a very challenging experience because the responsibility to work by yourself and engage culturally is very high. I think i grew a lot with this experience. It sure made me a more grown-up person than I was before- traveling so far, getting to know a whole different culture and maybe also not agree on things sometimes and accept them the way they are. All in all, I loved being in Belo. I had the opportunity of getting to know amazing people and learn to plan a project, become more experienced in environmental politics and rural development, widen my personal network and get to know new forms of activism. I honestly wouldn't want to miss this experience.
