VIEWS News September 2016

Dear Members, Partners and readers,

It is a great pleasure to come back to you now the summer holidays ended and school started. We are also back at VIEWS and have many interesting news for you.

We moved into new offices, then our nice three volunteers left us in the middle of the summer and two new ones will join us at the beginning of October as you are used now. And of course we have new projects and the ongoing ones go ahead.

In this issue you will read about the new offices of the organisation, about the planning visit of our two new volunteers, some news about our Strategic partnership project and about a planning visit for a youth exchange organised by a Polish partner.

We hope the three of them are going well and got well to their habits and are enjoying their life back home. We have the great pleasure to let you know that two other ones will join us for nine months. As each good VIEWS International volunteering project this one also starts with an Advance Planning Visit.
