international friends – and a lunch party !

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

WOW – each year, the World Travel Market offers fabulous opportunities for us to met up with partners, colleagues and friends from around the world … November 2016 was no exception. Pictured here, raising our glasses to our friendships and each other’s work in responsible travel are: Najeeb Khan (Pakistan), Yashin Dujon (Belize), Harold Goodwin (people and places), Glynn O’Leary (South Africa), Adama Bah (The Gambia), Gillian O’Leary (South Africa), Kate Stefanko (people and places) …

and also, Crista Buznea (Romania)

As you can no doubt imagine, conversation was wide-ranging, fascinating and sometimes challenging … yes, of course we talked about volunteering & volunteers, but a whole lot more as well … we love our work & relationships at ‘people and places‘.

PS – Sallie was there too – but late for the photos!

volunteers’ social meeting – November 12th – are you coming ?

Friday, September 30th, 2016

We all enjoy our volunteers’ social meetings – a lot – and November meetings are especially popular because one or more of our local partners is usually here in the UK and are able to come along and join us. This year, we’re delighted to announce that both Adama Bah from The Gambia and Michael Horton from Cambodia will be here in Faversham!

Date & Time: Saturday 12th November – 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Our invitation is to ALL volunteers – previous and future – why not come along and meet Adama & Michael, as well as the  ‘people and places‘  UK team.

Please let us know A.S.A.P. if you plan to come too, as we have rather limited space here at ‘head office’ (i.e. Kate’s home!)

Just email Kate – kate@travel-peopleandplaces.co.uk – to book your place !

Looking forward to meeting many volunteers, both ‘new’ and ‘old’ (!)
