Do you like to travel? Do you care about people? Do you love a challenge? Do you like to step outside of your comfort zone and experience something new? Do you care about global development and wonder why in some parts of the world people have such a struggle just to survive? Have you always wanted to do something about it?
If the answer is yes, then your time – your energy – your skills – your motivation and your enquiring mind could make a difference to people's lives in Kenya this year.
The Friends of Londiani (FOL) volunteer project is called Harambee – this is a swahili word which means 'working together' and this is what volunteering with FOL is all about. The next FOL Harambee volunteer project will be held in November this year starting on Nov 2nd with 2 or 3 week options. This is a short-term volunteer placement opportunity in Kenya along with a training programme around it to enhance the experience and help prepare you for it. This is a chance to use your skills to help make changes to peoples lives and to explore hands on for yourself an understanding of global development issues. Read more >

FOL's Strategic Planning Process
Since September 2012 FOL has been working on its strategic plan. Many stakeholders have been engaged and contributed to the process – in Ireland, Kenya and around the world.
The Strategic plan sets the direction of FOL for the next 3 years. It takes into account the changing environments that we work in; the challenges we face; and the input from all those we work with.
We are very excited by what has emerged, and want to take the opportunity to share our future direction with those who helped to create it.
We are delighted to announce the launch of the FOL Strategic Plan on Saturday May 25th at 5.00 pm in the FOL Office in Midleton, Co. Cork.
Come along to hear:
- What FOL will focus on in the years ahead
- What you can do to be involved and support this work
- And what will happen next
Please RSVP to Rose Hennessy in the office on our before Wednesday May 22nd.
Light refreshments will be provided on the night.
