Designed to be a magazine for global volunteers by global volunteers.
Pennsylvania, USA (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
The new online Global Volunteer Advisor Magazine provides a platform for global volunteers to share stories, stay informed, and get inspired. Readers can expect current, relevant stories and information that bring more awareness to the latest trends and topics. Success stories, NGO profiles, current projects, general advice, and tips are just some examples of content.
The magazine is expected to grow and expand as readers and organizations become increasingly involved. Stories, experiences, and knowledge shared by the readers will bring more value to everyone. Organization profiles will often present new volunteer opportunities as well as insight to the different sectors.
The premier issue profiles Community Micro-finance, an organization serving disadvantaged communities in Uganda. A current project is helping families replace their kerosene lamps with solar lamps. The article explains how the high cost of kerosene forces many families to limit its use, which means many children are unable to read or do homework at night, and thus do poorly on exams.
While the primary goal was to address this education gap with the solar lamps, the cost savings along with health and safety benefits provided much more value. The article will provide a family and village case study that shows its success. The organization will need volunteers to assess the impact of loans, help train clients, disburse solar loans, distribute materials, and mobilize resources to help other clients.
The premier issue also looks at a new youth movement that hopes to get more youth involved in charitable work. Readers can also learn how overseas service can be an advantage when serving locally. This issue will wrap up with the topic of malaria in the wake of a recent volunteer death in Kenya.
Subscribers to this magazine are strongly encouraged to send in their experiences, opinions, and tips for publication. The editor believes there is more value for everyone if knowledge is shared.
The Global Volunteer Advisor Magazine will be published on a monthly basis. Subscriptions are free. Issues can be accessed from an email link that is sent immediately following publication. The magazine can be read online or by downloading as a PDF file.
In essence, The Global Volunteer Advisor Magazine is designed to be a magazine for global volunteers by global volunteers. It also intends to be a valuable resource for those still aspiring to become a global volunteer. By reading about project case studies, current events in the field, volunteer experiences, and other tips and advice, readers have an opportunity to get inspired and stay informed in this service industry.
