I haven't started any big projects yet (and I am totally at peace with that) but I have been keeping busy with some smaller ones. I try to do something related to community health work every day, even if it's only greeting a new potential counterpart.
A couple weeks ago, I went to Dinguera, a village about 4 kilometers away on a bush path. Dinguera has a couple hundred people and a primary school, so I went to the school to greet the teachers and introduce myself. I found that the teachers at the primary school speak beautiful Pulaar and were friendly and enthusiastic about possible Peace Corps work collaborations. As a first project with them, I planned a handwashing/Ebola prevention causerie with Khaled Balde and his adorable students.
Khaled put glitter on a volunteer's hand, and told the poor girl she had pretend Ebola. She shook another girl's hand, who in turn shook a boy's hand, and so on down the line, until even after several degrees of separation from the original "patient," everyone had some glitter on their fingers.
Then we went to the tippy-tap station outside the school, which I constructed under a picturesque Flamboyant. The kids first tried to wash off the glitter with water alone - no dice. Then they tried it with soap, which was still only moderately effective, because glitter is devilish.
