Peace Brigades International in Manchester

PBI trainers and potential recruits in the spring of 2009.

After spending a year in Guatemala working with Peace Brigades International: Guatemala, Kindling's Helen and Matt have continued their involvement with the human rights organisation. Twice a year Kindling makes a small contribution to this amazing organisation by hosting PBI Guatemala's training and selection process.

Over a week in June, Kindling will once again be providing logistics: travel, accommodation, catering etc. to enable the training and selection of new volunteers from across the world.

The weeks are a lot of work (for both the trainers and the participants) and Kindling feels that it is essential that the logisics flow smoothly, allowing the group to focus on their work. It is our role to arrange a suitable and affordable venue, provide materials and transport, look after the training team during the preparation and evaluation process, and provide the meals.

Kindling has supported five selection weeks to date, at the Middlewood Ecological Trust (near Lancaster), and at Bushy Heath Farm (near Tideswell)
