The 4-1-1: On-Field Orientation

On-Field Orientation
A portion of your first day will be spent in orientation. We will build on what you have already learned before coming. The program will require you to participate fully in the activities and discussions. We hope that before you leave that you make the time to completely read through the informative booklet given to you during your orientation time. Topics that will be covered are:
  • an introduction to the Songhai people (customs, beliefs, daily life...)
  • how-to appropriately interact with the Songhai people
  • how Christian witness interfaces with Songhai culture
  • personal health and hygiene issues
  • how to work with a translator
  • safety precautions
  • details of your specific job
