This summer VLM are proudly sending seven volunteers to work in projects with the Daughters of Charity in Ethiopia. We would like to wish Ita, Sarah and Catherine well on their first time working at Atse Summer School in Addis Ababa. Sarah will continue with her placement in Mekele, northern Ethiopia after the four week summer school. They will also be joined in Atse by Vincent and Kathleen, veteran volunteers, who will spend some time in Bulbulla this summer as well.
Margaret, who is a librarian by profession, will work with the Daughters in Addis on archiving the history of the congregation in Ethiopia since 1928.
Finally, Carmel, with a background in social science, will fulfill a capacity building role between Addis and Bulbulla focussing on the new irrigation project in Bulbulla and other new developments in Addis. It is an exciting time for all of our volunteers and the Daughters look forward to welcoming them and the valuable contributions they will all make.
