A look at volunteerism

On the Guardian Unlimited website, David Townsend, a former speech writer and special adviser to the 1976-79 Labour government, and social services director for three councils in the UK, comments on his stint as a volunteer teaching children in a small school near the Angkor complex of temples. His two reports give a glimpse into 'volunteerism' and his thoughts on his experiences and suggestions for improvement. His first report was published in October, and his follow-up review was published today. Well worth a read.

At the lucid thoughts blogsite, an advert for teaching in the classifieds of The Cambodia Daily turned sour for one young lady in Phnom Penh. Read on.
