Voluntaries in Guinea Bissau
Every year we bring in volunteers to support the capacity building of schools and train teachers in Guinea-Bissau.
This mission also has a profound impact on the lives of the volunteers, almost therapeutic. Uprooting allows us to appreciate our roots, as well as nourishing energy for collaboration in transforming the world.
Although the video is narrated in Portuguese it is worth viewing it to get an idea of a volunteer’s experience.
