Platform 2, a Global Volunteering Experience Funded by the Department of International Development for 18-25 Year Olds. Closing Date - end of May 2009

Platform 2 is a fantastic opportunity for 18-25 year olds who would not be able to fund their own trip abroad, to go on a free 10 week trip to a developing country to work on community led projects. When they come back they are trained to express their experience to their peers, community and contacts in whatever way they want. It is Government funded and run by Christian aid with BUNAC and Islamic Relief. The project is an opportunity to live and work in a poor community in a country like Ghana, South Africa, Peru or India.

The next Platform2 deadline is just weeks away so if you, or someone you know, are interested in getting involved then please get them to apply as soon as possible. All the information that you need is on our website .

Please see attached e-mail from Tim O'Malley, Volunteer Development Officer, for further information and contact details.
