From far-flung places like the Philippines to the remote rainforests of Guyana, Cuso International’s volunteers are being recognized for their contributions during National Volunteer Week.
Merle Kindred, of Penticton, B.C. is using birds as a bridge to connect Guyana’s Indigenous rainforest communities with tourists. Lori Stamm, of Halifax, N.S., is working alongside marginalized youth in Honduras supporting them as they learn advocacy and leadership skills. Tiffany Tong and Marshall Bell, of Charlottetown, PEI, are in the Philippines helping small businesses affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
