A glimpse into aid work!

I came across a program aired on a local channel called No Ordinary Journey. I couldn't have stumbled across this at a better time. This program is a AusAid funded PR piece and follows a number of Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) through their placements. It was great to watch! If you are interested in knowing more about the program or what we could potentially be involved with in Palau, I would strongly urge you to watch this!

Below is one of the short stories about Alice in Aceh. I included this clip because it touches on food security work in Aceh and is potentially similar to work that I'll be doing in Palau.

We leave for Palau in 9 weeks and it provided an insight into some of the challenges and experiences. Although Palau was not included the experiences of settling in and connecting with community are still the same. It made me really, really excited to see what we can do and whilst it may not be for everyone I know that I am ready and able. That's not to say there won't be tears, frustration and self doubt but that's all part of the process.Right!?!
