December 5 is international volunteer day
It is all about partnerships between Canadian volunteers and local staff.
December 5 is International Volunteer Day -- an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of a generous group of individuals who share their time and talents out of a powerful commitment to make the world a better place.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Veterinarians without Borders/Vétérinaires sans frontières Canada. The organization was founded by volunteers and in its early days it was managed by volunteers. Today volunteers offer our partners around the world a whole range of technical skills and abilities. We are particularly grateful for the commited support we receive from Canada's veterinarian and animal health communities. Canadian veterinarians, veterinary students, veterinary technicians, animal nutritionists and others share their skills and knoweldge with counterparts around the world. Always, the goal is to improve the health of animals, the health and livelihoods of people, and the ecological health of the planet that supports all of us.
VWB/VSF also needs people with specific knowledge of gender programming, monitoring and evaluation, communications, and integrated rural dcevelopment to name a few. If you think this may be something you would like to do CLICK HERE for current opportunities.
We would like to introduce you to one of VWB/VSF's most experienced and dedicated volunteers. Dr. Roger Thomson has coordinated a poultry project in Tanzania for many years, and has mentored many young volunteers in the process.
