Over the next year, we will be posting monthly journals of three active UNA Exchange volunteers on the website.  They are now doing long term placements in Cameroon, Ethiopia and Senegal, with different organisations. They all got involved in international volunteering through UNA Exchange and show how far international volunteering can take you!
