Projects Abroad 20 Years On!
I spent six months teaching in Ion Creanga Lycee which Projects Abroad still sends volunteers to today. It was an amazing experience living with a fantastic Russian speaking family and working with some very supportive colleagues. I am still in regular touch with 4 of the original 15 volunteers twenty years later. Will Pashley who team taught with me is now even running our recruitment office in Australia!
Since then I have worked as a teacher, recruited for Projects Abroad, worked in a variety of overseas destinations and am now based in our Head Office in Goring by Sea. It is great to see the growth of Projects Abroad - now sending 8,000 volunteers away each year.
It will be interesting to see where Projects Abroad is in another 20 years’ time!
