Palms Volunteers: Information Sessions


Fulfilling International Mission for Skilled Volunteers

Communities in East Timor, PNG, Kenya, Kiribati, Samoa and elsewhere are asking for teachers, health and community development workers, administrators, agricultural workers and others. You can assist to mentor local workers in your field of expertise. This will provide opportunities for those who have not had the advantage of an Australian education; improve the operations of organisations in vital sectors of local communities and so assist poverty reduction.

Since 1961 Palms Australia has assisted these communities through preparation and support of Australians who volunteer to share their lives and skills. We have increasing numbers of requests from communities who believe this approach, more than anything else, assists their self-reliance and sustainable development.

Thanks to everyone who brought their enthusiasm to our sessions in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney! One to go now in this round so for those in WA, come to our Perth Information Session:

To evangelise is to make the Kingdom of God present in our world … to eliminate the structural causes of poverty and to promote the integral development of the poor. - Pope Francis (Joy of the Gospel 176, 188)
