sharing skills, changing lives

a guest blog by courtney hempton

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.

all from a mere thought...
