The second in our series of #Passion4Solidarity videos: Brigid-Rose
Brigid-Rose volunteered with VSO Ireland, carrying out a two-year placement as a teacher. She advises that teachers thinking about volunteering overseas should be prepared to integrate with the local community, and plan to be adaptable and patient. Perhaps most importantly, from Brigid-Rose’s perspective, is being willing and able to walk in the shoes of the people you work and engage with in host communities. This will help you as a volunteer to better understand the struggles communities face.
