Dear Friends and Supporters
Be proud of yourselves!
KI is happy to announce, due in no small part to your kindness and generosity, that we are able to start recruiting our 7th batch of volunteers. We have started the recruitment process now and will begin selection and training in January 2012. We aim to have 10 volunteers in their placements, working for peace by March 2012.
KI has also secured partial support for the project from the Australian Government through the Regional Communities Outreach Program of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. However, this only covers part of our costs and your donations are vital to the continuation of the project. We run a streamlined organization, keeping our operating costs to a bare minimum, so that we can train as many volunteers as possible.
Thank you again for your support
Focus on Fatima
We are very proud of Ms. Fatima Bantao who has been selected as a Global Xchange volunteer. She is the first KI volunteer and first Maranao woman to qualify for the GX program.
Fatima finished her placement as one of our 6th batch of volunteers in August 2011. She is spending 3 months in Bohol, Philippines and then 3 months in Bradford, UK with a group of British and Filipino youth working on community projects.
