April 2019 Newsletter

On the 28th March 2019, Birmingham City University held an event for current students that focused on volunteering abroad and the benefits of the aforementioned. The main aim of the session was to make students aware of the benefits of volunteering abroad and that although they do not receive a salary they get their expenses paid. Daniel and Ema joined me at the session to discuss their experiences. Students at the start were really moved by their testimony especially Ema’s testimony taking into account how much her volunteering experience influenced her life, I believe this made the students feel more comfortable but also it helped them relate to their story.
