Voices of Volunteers

February 2014

Hello Volunteers! Hello 2014!  It's great to be back with our latest issue of 'Voices of Volunteers'.
 
In this edition we've got some beautifully written volunteering experiences from Ghana and Jordan as well as an inspiring article from a youth exchange that took place in Kuterevo, Croatia, discussing peace, nature, activism and sustainable lifestyles as part of our 2014 campaign 'Create a Climate for Peace'.  
 
And since workcamp season is nearly upon us (yes, it's almost March!) we have a little update on our yearly Talkshow event that's currently being prepared for you. It's going to be packed full of motivating interviews, so don't forget to look out for it!    
 
Peaceful greetings to you all.

Talkshow Time!

Dawn Birds and Beating Drums

Language course class (English, Fante, Slovenian), Azani Community School (2014)

By Erika Prijatelj B. 
  
"The singing of the dawn birds and the sounds of the drums which call me out of my slumber are only but fragments of the fact of why I love waking up into the new day here at the Busua Community Library in Western Region."

"Whether you are a climate change skeptic or believe that humans are to blame for global warming, the simple fact is that changes are happening and they are affecting even remote areas like Kuterevo."

 

Volunteering in Zaatari Camp

 Zaatari Camp, Jordan (2013)

By Elin Hofman

"The area is surrounded with tents and caravans, just everywhere you look, you'll see them, there seems to be no end. It's all white, apart from the brown ground that's dusty and will become even dustier when the summer arrives."
 
 

Talkshow Time!

 
 Talkshows (2013)
 
Coming soon! In the next few weeks we will be starting our Talkshows to mark the start of the new volunteering season with exciting interviews about voluntary projects from all around the world.
 
We will be doing things a little differently this year, instead of packing it all in to one day we will broadcast the interviews over several weeks, for extra Talkshow goodness! Our first Talkshow will be with you on Friday, 21st of March! More details on the schedule and guests will be announced in the next few weeks on our website, facebook and twitter, so stay tuned!
