International Volunteers Day 2022
International volunteering was severely challenged and disrupted through the Covid19 global pandemic. But great challenge produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. To celebrate International Volunteers Day 2022, we were excited to focus on three important theses; Purpose, Togetherness and Joy.
The strength of human spirit found in Australian volunteers is amazing without a pandemic, so to see the lengths that volunteers have gone to to be able to stay connected and stay engaged with their partner organisations around the world is nothing short of amazing. As Brene Brown says, “we are hardwired to connect with others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.”
Thank you to Josiah, Ramas, Rebeca and Suhasini for sharing your stories for this campaign. And for just being amazing humans in general.
