International Volunteers at Gezubuso Projects
Feedback and outlook
The coordinating office for international volunteers at the Archdiocese of Freiburg, Germany, had invited the local partner organisations for a joint meeting in Durban on the 26th of February 2019. Gezubuso Projects was represented by Rudolf Köhne-Volland, who was staying with Gezubuso Projects at that time for an oversight meeting.
The feedback from Ms. Magdalena Zimmermann of the coordinating office was quite positive and Gezubuso Projects can expect another volunteer following Joshua in August 2019. One homework was to better plan for accommodation of the volunteer in families, as this is seen a key aspect of integration. We take this feedback serious and we'll work hard to improve as we are well aware of the importance of integration for a successful volunteer service.
