Have you ever eaten a mopani worm? It’s big, black, chewy and, three worms later, I got a certificate to prove it!
The worm-snack was part of a traditional meal at the Boma Eatery in Victoria Falls. During the meal, I struck up conversation with a man who wanted to know more about what Save the Children had done in the area. He said that although he had heard much about Save the Children for many years, he had not met people who had benefited from our work.
This was one conversation with one person, but it raised the question of how we let people know about our impact and the difference we have made.
From writing weekly situation reports, I know for a fact that we have worked with many beneficiaries in his area. Since January this year, we have benefited over 8,000 children as part of our educational support program in schools in Vic Falls.
