The Student Rally took place today and though I did not attend; it sounds like it was a success which came as a huge suprise.
Yesterday I got a phone call from a member of the AIDS Commission and he asked if I could call all the schools and invite them to the rally. I did point out that (a) someone else had been assigned this task and (b) it was a bit late considering it was the day before. I did call the schools and some of them had been given the wrong date; many had not even heard about the rally!
The very same day (yesterday) the same person called me and asked if I knew what the program was again I pointed out (a) and (b) above but nonetheless I agreed to help out.
The guy who had been calling me did attend the rally and he ended up doing most of the work even though someone else had said they would be in charge of the rally. He said it was very well attended and the students got involved and performed and even sold some of our red ribbons!
As for work: My placement leader and I decided to drive to Benque Viejo Del Carmen, a town right on the Belize/Guatamela border. We figured that lack of internet made it impossible to work so we drove all that way to take a cheque to the printing company that made our brochures and on the way back we stopped at Octavia Waight Centre -a home for older persons – so we did actually do something.
