Voices of Our Future 2010, here we come!

I am amazed, enthused, inspired and shaking with all the applicants who are already clamoring to be part of Voices of Our Future 2010. They are coming from Botswana, Belarus, Pakistan, India, Ghana, and the UK, to name a few!

I am equally amazed and appreciative of the amazing people who have signed up to volunteer as Listeners for our program. These Listeners are social workers, journalists, UNHCR staff, lawyers, students and more.

As we launch this program, the first step I took 8 months ago as part of this team seems so long ago! I am amazingly happy to see the hard work paying off, the interest in this program is staggering and speaks to the kind of impact it has.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me in this journey. Here is to a brilliant year ahead!

    I am so happy that the program is set off! I have already sent my response to Scott because I want to be a listener for the program.

    Thanks sweetheart for all the stamina and passion you put into this beautiful program. I am looking forward to working with you more closely!

    Hugs,

    Jackie
