The three members were: Tchamo Joaoquim from Mozambique, Anne Wumbui Mumbi from Kenya,and Fadina Kolade Setondji Justin from Benin.


For all members of the team, their time in Lizhuang Middle School was quite busy and fulfilling when they busied themselves in various forms teaching activities, such as English teaching, music teaching, football training and other kinds of student club activities.


Apart from their daily teaching activities, two fabulous English lectures were presented for students in Lizhuang Middle School by the three ‘foreign teachers’ who introduced to the students some aspects about Africa indluding culture, scenic sites, customs and cuisine, which greatly interested the students.


Once back at Tongji University, all three international students expressed their great fondness for Lizhuang, a place in their eyes that was totally different from Shanghai. ‘Tranquil and peaceful, Lizhuang is the place where its people are also warm and kind,’ they said. They also wish to come back there, if possible, to visit teachers and students someday.
