A message from Comhlámh


“Have you ever wondered about overseas volunteering? In Comhlámh we recognise the crucial role of education workers in shaping more equitable and caring societies. Teachers and education workers have a long track record of volunteering in the Global South, playing a role in the continuing struggles for more just and equitable communities, society and globe, at home and abroad. We are proud of the role we have played, and continue to play, in supporting this work.

To that end we have set up the #Passion4Solidarity page to be a one-stop-shop for all education and health workers thinking about travelling overseas to volunteer.Over the coming couple of weeks we will be rolling out videos of workers just like you reflecting on their experiences volunteering overseas. We have tools to help answer any queries you might have about international volunteering as well as information on pension and other contributions whilst working overseas. There are links to sending agencies there too – sending agencies who have signed up to Comhlámhs Code of Good Practice which is all about ensuring positive, sustainable impacts for host communities as well as for you as the volunteer."
