The Comhlámh Coming Home Weekend – ‘Sustaining Our Work’

If you have volunteered in the Global South for three motnhs or more, this two-day residential retreat will give you time to reflect on your placement in the Global South, together with other returned volunteers and development workers. It aims to give:

  • an opportunity for personal reflection on some of the challenges and highpoints of your time overseas;
  • the chance to meet others who have had similar journeys and to collectively consider the impact of your experiences;
  • a space where you can link your overseas experience within your ongoing work for global justice, sustaining your active engagement from Ireland.
