Selection Day for our weltwärts volunteers for 2017/18

For the fifth time, the VSA joined SAGE Net.’s selection day. Four years in a row already, volunteers from Germany have supported the awarenet programme by coming over to Grahamstown to work with us for an entire year. We are grateful, but even more proud of our successful cooperation with SAGE Net. Together, we believe that we make a real difference in the lives of our awarenet learners and the young Germans. We support international understanding, tolerance and peace.

On Saturday, 11/2/17 more than 40 applicants were interviewed and tested during workshops. It is always a very exciting and a very exhausting day at the same time. Two of the young people straight out of school will fly to South Africa in September. They will be well prepared for the trip during a 10 day seminar by SAGE Net. and a 3 day workshop by the VSA.

We are very much looking forward to get to know them better very soon. Watch this space for an introduction.
