Cuba 2022

by Carina Thomas-Beech




Campaign has ended


In January 2020, I took my granddaughter to Tanzania where we volunteered in Ipalamwa, working with Global Volunteers. I am a teacher, so I put my skills to work, primarily in the Secondary school, while Grace worked in the Kindergarten. This was definitely a life changing 3 weeks! I have never felt quite so able to make a difference. I felt so moved by the gratitude of these warm, friendly people.

I am bursting to repeat this experience, in a different culture, and have registered to go to Cuba in 2022, where I will be supporting Global Volunteers in any way I can.

The airfares from NZ make this a very expensive venture, so any contributions I able to get towards the programme fees would be so gratefully accepted.

With love and thanks.


Global Volunteers' mission is to connect people worldwide to wage peace and promote justice through service. Our goal is to sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their communities, so they can realize the full promise of their human potential. Each Global Volunteer plays a significant role in positively impacting the people they serve and the communities they visit

Working on teams of up to 20 individuals, volunteers participate in one-to-three-week service opportunities where they create, nurture, and sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their families. Volunteers are welcomed into homes, classrooms, clinics, community centers, hospitals, orphanages, childcare centers, libraries, government offices, farm fields, and more on exceptional international service-learning programs providing essential services of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Volunteers work with and learn from and about local people who are making real change in their communities to help children grow and thrive.

By supporting volunteers' efforts, you contribute directly to the future success of children in partner communities. Your generous donation to your chosen volunteer ensures that these services continue year-round. Thank you for making this investment in the future of our world - our children!
