Many thanks for taking a few minutes to share your thoughts and ideas

The twin challenges of Austerity and Brexit have created a challenging environment for international volunteering - but a challenge which UNA Exchange and WCIA are rising to. By merging and pooling our resources, we hope future generations can continue to enjoy the 'transformational life experiences' of international volunteering, intercultural exchange and peace building.
