Home Work & Volunteering
We've started our first discussion for our Christmas campaign which is focusing on religion or cultural beliefs that help you when you're feeling down. Some of the responses will be used anonymously on social media as a video. If you'd like to take part, head over to this thread.

Platform2 is a global volunteering experience funded by UKaid from the Department for International Development and run by Christian Aid and BUNAC. Applications have just opened for January and March 2010 trips.

These are the opportunities:

South Africa, to volunteer with the Johannesburg Child Welfare Society which directly assists over 18,000 abused, abandoned, neglected, orphaned and vulnerable children each year.

or Nepal, constructing a much-needed new secondary school building and teaching at the after-school clubs.

perhaps Kenya, working on a project to conserve the forest ecosystem by improving the livelihoods of communities nearby through environmentally sustainable income generating activities such as fish farming and bee-keeping.

You can apply online or download the application from www.myplatform2.com. Completed applications, references and either a photocopy of your passport (or if you don't have a passport, your birth certificate) need to be received by October.

Platform2 is a fully-funded volunteering opportunity for 18-25 year olds who otherwise could not afford to volunteer overseas.
