Every three years AVP holds an international gathering to bring together volunteers from all over the AVP world. The Gathering encourages the sharing of experiences and training methods. AVP Ireland has been in a position to offer financial support to part fund the travel expenses of two of our Irish facilitators who will travel to Nepal in November 2017. We are also happy to be able to fund the attendance of an AVP representative from Bolivia.
It should be a marvellous event. You can learn more here on the official website.
We look forward to hearing from our volunteers when they report back before Christmas. We are happy to attach a link to the report from the last International Gathering which took place in Ireland in 2014 when 154 facilitators from 43 countries attended. We think the report prepared by Jenny Haughton will help you grasp the spirit and ambition of the meeting.
