Palms Australia has been recruiting, preparing, sending and supporting volunteers fighting global poverty by sustainable development since 1961 (happy 50th birthday, Palms!) Palms’ ethos is relationship, symbolised by the hands in the logo. We have a current need to fill requests for volunteers from overseas partners to begin after July this year. Would you please help us in making the work of Palms better known and ultimately able to recruit volunteers? Volunteering of course is not a one-way street. And the end of a placement does not mean the end of a relationship built up with a community. For those who do not work in the field too, there are other ways to assist – Palms’ Encounter and Community programs being two of them.
