From CUSO: Volunteering, and free Info Sesssion on July 17, 2013

[forwarded from Jody]
Hello Humanist Association of Toronto,

On behalf of Cuso International, we are delighted to invite you to an upcoming information session on our current overseas volunteer programs in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Cuso International is an international development organization that works in more than 40 countries to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of skilled volunteers. Each year Cuso International sends over 200 people to lend their skills and work alongside local counterparts in NGOs, community organizations, schools, and governments. Our programs are supported by the Canadian government and donors; this allows us to cover all associated costs – from airfare and health insurance to accommodation and a modest living allowance. More information can be found at http://www.cusointernational.org.
We feel that members of your professional, personal, and volunteer networks may be interested in some of our current placements and we encourage you to share this event information, whether it be through HAT’s calendar of events or through the forwarding of this to your list serve.
Sincere thanks for taking to time to read and share. We hope that are able to join us to learn more about our programs and how you can get involved. Presenting at this meeting will be Cuso International staff and returned volunteers. You may read more on the event here.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
Sincerely,  Samantha Cassar
 We hope that you can join us at this event and would greatly appreciate your sharing of this information within your personal and professional networks.
