The following is an e-postcard from Zamil Akhtar, a GlobalGiving Representative in the Philippines:
Teamwork and critical thinking were emphasized during KI’s volunteer boot camp. Not every volunteer is selected; a rigorous process excludes those who are not motivated or lack ingenuity. I doubted I would be able to pass after hearing the volunteers discuss a practice question that had to do with saving lives on a sinking ship. But those who do pass go on to do great things: many of the former volunteers are now working for major NGO’s. There’s no doubt this program is life changing for these volunteers; it is also hoped that these volunteers will help foment peace in a troubled region.
