New volunteer coordinator takes over

Our new on-site volunteer coordinator has been getting to know Conviven for over a week now and here are Bella’s first thoughts about her new job and Conviven. Bella arrived from London and will be with us for a year.

“My role as I see it is making sure that there are enough activities for both volunteers and children – both should feel involved and looked after. At the moment things are rather slow at Conviven as most of the kids are at summer camps, I – however – seem to have lots to do with organizing new volunteers, responding to all of Liis mails and working out how things are done this side of the world.

All in all after a few days of total confusion am beginning to feel really at home which is pretty good after only a week. All the people at Conviven have been really lovely and I do love the place – it really has a lot of potential, it just needs people to really get involve and come up with great activities for the kids. Dale, need to get back to work.”

I am very excited that you have taken over and are assuming a long-term posting. This is precisely what will enable Conviven to succeed.

Can you please email me as soon as possible (

I would like to discuss with you future financial assistance and a volunteer that we (CDI, friend of Conviven) are sending to Conviven.

I hope to hear from you soon,
