“DO YOUR LITTLE BIT OF GOOD WHERE YOU ARE. IT IS THOSE LITTLE BITS OF GOOD PUT TOGETHER THAT OVERWHELM THE WORLD.” – DESMOND TUTU

Meeting the Volunteers: Kirsty Woodhead

Before meeting Kirsty Woodhead, I knew that she had South African roots and was curious to hear her accent. Having moved to Canada at a young age, she has lost her accent and laments this loss. Kirsty regularly visits the country of her birth and displays such pride at her heritage, that I feel a rush of pride myself whenever she talks about the Rainbow Nation.

“À COEUR VAILLANT RIEN D'IMPOSSIBLE”

Meeting the Volunteers: Marion Sabatié

Diary of a Lost French Student

After the sound of my alarm clock, it is very difficult to get up – but thinking of all the things I will do today, I find the courage to leave my bed. I meet some of my fellow students in the kitchen to have breakfast together. After brushing my teeth, we are finally ready to get down to business. First, we have to go to the office for the morning meeting. We are told what to do for today, but very often the tasks evolve over the...

The Cheetah Challenge

The Cheetah Challenge

The Western Cape Cheetah Conservation (WCCC) at Inverdoorn Game Reserve is a rescue and rehabilitation centre for cheetahs. With only 6 000 cheetahs left throughout the world, it has become one of the most endangered big cats. In addition to rescuing cheetahs and raising awareness about the threats to their survival, the WCCC has implemented breeding programmes in an effort to combat declining numbers in the population. Cheetahs are...
