When I first began volunteering with Crossroads International in Togo in 2019, I knew I was part of something larger. Working on an issue of urgent human rights in another country truly makes you feel like a global citizen.
Volunteering and partnering to support women and girls facing great adversity in Africa during a global pandemic looks different, but it is needed now more than ever. Discover why Nana, Maryse or Moustapha are committed to share their skills and knowledge to keep making a difference.
