“The world is hugged by the
      faithful arms of
        volunteers.”

                Everett Mámor
“ I am very proud of
the fact that I might
have started
something that
could do so much
good.”

                 Nigel
“Volunteer - you
   will get far
  more out of it
 than you have
     put in.”

          Monica
“There is nothing that
 harvests more of a feeling
  of empowerment than
being of service to someone
          in need.”
              Gillian Anderson
“You only get
   out of it
  what you
   put in”
         Duncan
Mel and Peter         Nobody
                can do everything,
                 but everyone can
                   do something.

“In addition to
making a
difference, our
family actually came
home richer in
personal and global
perspectives.”

   Mike Hsieh Mapoch
“I was very impressed
by Lisong’s focus on
teacher training as the
way to raise education
standards nationwide
rather than working in
individual schools
where improvements
will affect only a small
number of children.”

                  Dianne
“As a UK teacher, I am
used to everything
being structured. I
never knew when
children would turn up
and more and more
would appear once I'd
started an activity.”
                  Lucy
“ people & places were
the only organisation I
came across which
focused on matching skills
to project needs. They
provided the opportunity
to apply my professional
skills and thus allow me
to make a more
significant difference to
my project.”
        Kris (in Lucy’s tiara)
“Perhaps travel cannot
                 prevent bigotry, but by
                 demonstrating that all
                 peoples
                 cry, laugh, eat, worry, and
                 die, it can introduce the
                 idea that if we try to
                 understand each other, we
Sue and Salome
                 may even become friends'
                                 Maya Angelou
I would recommend
volunteering to others
because you learn about
the people as well as the
place. It’s not easy - I was
very tired in the evenings
but at the end of it you
really feel that you have
done something
worthwhile.

                       Tony
“We feel that our
skills have been well
   matched to the
 needs of the staff
  and it has been a
       pleasure
 to serve them.”

     Hugh and Joan
“I was so impressed
with the level of
enthusiasm within the
staff. They were so
eager to learn new
techniques and to
observe these
techniques within their
classrooms.”
                   Sara
“The home stay
 accommodations were
 wonderful. We weren’t
sure what to expect, and
 we ended up just loving
    the home and the
 township. There was a
true sense of community
    and everyone was
extremely friendly to us.”

                  Eileen
"This old white man has
  done what other people
  of my own colour refuse
  to, he has given me the
  chance to learn to work
  with my own hands”.

Nathi- local unemployed youth
                about Charles
“Going home was
really hard. In South
Africa, not a day
passed when I didn't
feel valuable, or like I
was learning and
seeing new things.”

                  Emma
“If you think you are too
small to be effective, you
 have never been in bed
     with a mosquito.”
                 Betty Reese
“I always felt safe
and with the many
activities, I never had
a dull moment.
I went there with an
open mind and so
wasn’t disappointed
about anything!”
                Edwina
“The true meaning of life is
 to plant trees, under
 whose shade you do not
 expect to sit.”
               Nelson Henderson
“My job is to design
the curriculum and
then develop
appropriate learning
materials – so far so
good in fact so far so
brilliant!”

                   Bill
“ I am only one, but I am one.
 I cannot do everything, but I can do
      something. And I will not let
what I cannot do interfere with what I
                can do. ”
                         Edward Everett Hale
Thank you for contributing to
   human development. You
   may consider the role you
   have played or about to play
   small in such a big world full
   with all sorts of problems but
   do not forget it is one kick at
   a time that scores the
   winning goal! Therefore, no
   role is small until we win!


Adama - local partner The Gambia
Nokwakha( Nita) and Pumesa
There are two ways of
spreading light - to be the
candle or the mirror that
reflects it.
                Edith Wharton
