Was the MESA information you received in your home country clear? Was the description of your training site accurate? What more would you have liked MESA to send you before you left you home country?It was the first time working with the host, but the information they gave me and the connection with host both worked well.
If you worked with a Program Representative in your home country, was he/she helpful? Is there anything more the Representative could have done to help you complete your application or to better understand MESA's program?She was really helpful, I almost don't have any constructive feedback to give.
Any problems with housing, electricity, heat, phone, driver's license, bank account, transportation? Other problems?The bank account took a while to be settled up but now it's fine.
I don't have my own transport but I'm trying to handle that.
Describe the training you have received since getting to your placement site. What have you learned so far? Have you attended any special training, workshops, conferences, classes, etc.?The work began with a 3 week trainning, including workshops, classes, and sessions with outside teachers. I've learned a lot about goats, chickens and teaching.
We also have some off site day programs.
Have you been involved in an cultural activities since your arrival? (examples : farmers' workshop, library event, soccer games, family activities, etc)We had a family day but it was part of the program, and also some residential events inside the ranch. But I haven't attend other events outside yet.
Any suggestions to improve MESA's program?Maybe Including hosts from other countries. But besides that, great job!
