Interview with Robert Davies, founder of UNA Exchange, conducted on Friday 18th October 2019 at the Temple of Peace and Health by Hélène Chaland (volunteer at UNA Exchange for the year 2019/2020) using the Proust Questionnaire.
UNA Exchange in its current form has existed since 1973, but its history and heritage go back to the 1960s, when our founder, Robert Davies, first got involved with the United Nations Association. Since then, Davies also founded VCS Cymru, which is today the oldest Volunteer Bureau in the U.K. and works closely with UNA Exchange to keep the international volunteering tradition alive. Our founder is a key figure in the field of voluntary services both in Wales and internationally. In his book, All Together (2010), he recalled the early days of his volunteering career until the creation of UNA Exchange. Keep on reading to find out more about our history and our amazing founder.
