Chloe created this video, using short clips over a 4 month period of her volunteering experience so far.
Chloe is a volunteer teacher trainer in Rwanda, working with local schools to strengthen the education system for years to come. She says
"Everyone I meet is so welcoming. All the volunteers genuinely want to make a difference and are truly passionate. It's great to know that the work I'm doing will continue long after I've left. And it's amazing to step onto a school playground and be surrounded by 100 excited children!"
Mounting evidence shows food security has dwindled during the pandemic, especially for the most marginalised. Without urgent action, a year of famines looks increasingly likely in 2021. We must harness the power of volunteering for development to provide urgent relief and build more resilient livelihoods fit for the future.
