In Zambia

If you are interested in volunteering directly in Zambia for a few months, please contact Mikie on 085-1189883. Mikie spent six months there in 2007 and therefore could answer any questions you may have. Work that could be valuable includes teaching, administrative work, and counselling, but we are always open to suggestions.

Third weekend in February - Dunboyne/Kilbride, Co. Meath
Third weekend in February – Kilcormac/Mountbolus, Co. Offaly

As you will notice, these venues are all in Meath, Westmeath, Offaly, Roscommon and Louth. We are actively seeking volunteers who are prepared to organise a church gate collection in their locality, anywhere around the country. If you would like to help out, we will arrange to apply for the collection permit and will provide posters and collection buckets. PLEASE HELP!

If you would be willing to help us out with these collections, or would like to organise a collection in your own local area, please contact Teresa on 086-3946968 or 046-9029092.
