Liam greets the volunteers
On 18 April Irish Aid organised a Volunteering Information Fair in Dublin. Liam O’Connell SJ represented Jesuit Volunteers International (JVI) and the Mission Office at the event, and he had interesting conversations with 48 of the 400 people who attended. These included past students from Jesuit schools, people who have just taken early retirement, husband and wife teams who want to volunteer, and those making plans for 2010. JVI are specifically looking for people to teach in a Jesuit primary school in Dodoma in Tanzania, starting in July, and people to teach English to adults in a Jesuit language school in Yangon, Myanmar starting in August 2009.
