YES! We are still accepting applications and have a number of openings — so please get yours in and spread the word to others who might be interested. We’d especially like the delegation to include some with interest and knowledge about — water systems for a small community, post traumatic stress and healing, teachers, etc.
We hope to have all delegates live in the Puget Sound area, since that allows for maximal team building, preparation, and mutual support before and after the Journey. We have had a number of requests from out of towners, and have devised the following criteria: we are open to consider delegates from out of the area if they are willing to commit to coming to Seattle for a weekend training/team building before the Journey — and a weekend debrief/sharing after the Journey. We also ask that they find at least one or more other delegate to join with them from their community, so they will not be isolated.
We are watching the situation in Kenya closely — and are considering flying to Bujumbura via Addis Ababa instead of Nairoba. We have found this route is considerably less expensive and then keeps us out of what may continue to be a volatile situation.
We have just updated the application so be sure to use the version dated 3/12/08
