Volunteer: John Romweber


I worked as a teacher at a MCDE in the Nkhata Bay region.  My students were fabulous--always making the best of rather harsh conditions.  Malawi was a superb place to work and live.  The volunteers with whom I served have become lasting friends.  I am utterly grateful for my time as a PCV.

  1. Malawi Nativity Scene at Chikangawa

    Years later, no participant will claim this to be their idea.  We wrote the character names on little pieces of paper (Jesus, Mary, wise man #1, angel #1, etc) placed the papers in a hat and drew rolls.  Each of us was allotted 15 minutes or so to put together a costume before making this photo.

  2. Malawi Shooting the Moon

    Staff members: playing cards amid afternoon prep.  For having grown up on a steady diet of knock-knock (aka Uno) my colleagues showed great enthusiasm for hearts and the dreaded queen of spades.
