Please contact Linda :
I am looking for an expert volunteer who can train academic staff in the
latest tertiary teaching techniques.
AESOP Business Volunteers has been going for 20 years and is funded largely
by the Australian government. We send experts to developing countries in
the Asia Pacific area and these volunteers transfer their skills to local
people. You may wish to visit our website: www.aesop.org.au We pay
volunteer's airfares, visas and medical costs and our clients provide
accommodation and a small living allowance. Most projects are no longer
than 3 months.
I have a project in Cambodia (project summary below) but none of our
registered volunteers have quite this kind of expertise. I am hoping you
can help, either by offering a volunteer or by advising me whom I could
