a chance to meet project leaders and other volunteers

November 4th 12.00 to 17.00

Put it in your diaries – more news in a few weeks time.

Saturday 4th November

Come and meet previous, present and co volunteers – and some of our local partners – as well as the people and places team.

A chance to learn more if you plan to volunteer – and a chance to meet old friends if you are a previous volunteer.

We have not confirmed our location yet – and we appreciate that this is important! but we wanted you to get the date in your diaries (we know you are busy people!) as soon as possible.

 

international friends – and a lunch party !

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!
