upcoming Zambia trip
I'm going to Zambia for the first week in October. I haven't been there in over two years, but in the meantime I've been to Ghana & Liberia quite a bit. Here are the (pre-blog) writeups for those trips.

In the Humanist Movement, we're working as volunteers to create a world with the human being as the central value. Some people do that by forming teams, then teaching those teams to have a weekly meeting with personal work (see links to my blog posts about Principles of Valid Action in the sidebar) and organizing of social projects. That's what I was doing in Ghana & Liberia.

Some volunteers have other roles. One of those roles is the admi and is primarily concerned with the circulation of information. Before my stint in Ghana & Liberia I travelled quite often to Zambiato perform this admi role, and I'm going back to do so again. I'll be working with the teams of my peers Regula and Julius.
