November 11, 2015

Avrom Glickman tells us in his own words how he used volunteering as a means to improve the lives of people on the other side of the world… I have never been a person with a life plan and so when I stopped working full time I was very unclear how I was going to spend my […]

October 2, 2014

I often write about volunteer stories that inspire or challenge me, or make me reflect.

My younger son has been a little unwell […]
