Well Day 3 of my trip here for Voices for Justice and already I am seeing changes, both in my political and poverty knowledge. It has been such an exciting day that I fell asleep early yesterday from extreme exhaustion, so pardon the lateness of my post.
Yesterday there were things that we’re exposed to that was very exciting and new! So without further ado, here are the dot points.
- I Cooked with POO and I liked it! Yes, you read right. I had the opportunity to see the famous Khun Poo, a brilliant Thai chef, cooking her favorite dish in front of everyone at the event! I even tasted it and it was delicious!
- Toilets are important, more important than water! Believe it or not, the casualties which happens in developing countries are mostly from contamination of food and water from feces!
- We finally did our pre-briefing on how we are going to harass the politicians today, not really harass but you get the point :) and also I’m writing Day 3 on Day 4.
- We also spoke a lot about the current MDG’s and it’s progress.
Overall, Day 3 has been such a success! I managed to slowly grasp the ideas of talking to a parliamentarian, identify the importance of WaSH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) especially to fighting global child and maternal casualties!
Oh and did I mention how Awesome toilets are?? :)
