VSO: 50 years in Nigeria!



In 1958, the first two VSO volunteers got their placement descriptions on the boat bound to Nigeria. 50 years later, VSO has about 56 volunteers all over the country! We were quite happy to be part of the 50 years celebrations at British Council in Abuja on 9 July! It was a rare occasion which brought together all the volunteers and of course everyone was delighted to meet my hubby! Of course it was quite easy to spot him since we both were wearing very similar clothes! In Nigeria family members tend to wear the same fabric clothes when attending parties!
