sharing skills, changing lives

a guest blog by courtney hempton

[reading The life you can save: Acting now to end world poverty]
and a thought.
always lurking... a thought...
became a decision.
months of planning and days of travel later, i am here.
volunteering in the Republic of Cameroon with the support of a partnership program between Australian Volunteers International and Voluntary Service Overseas.
and i am privileged.
by the completely kaleidoscopic experience of living in a developing country, and by the daily opportunity to contribute to minimising the disparity between how the world is and how i wish it could be.
all from a mere thought...
