This week our ABCD Board member Carl Jones is in Sri Lanka visiting some schools, an orphanage, a trade school for young people from juvenile courts, a couple of Rotary Clubs and some educational trusts – all in all a pretty busy week! Carl’s trip has been made a little busier by his would-be travelling companion (that’s me…!) managing to acquire a back injury last week which has prevented travelling. Great timing on my part – apologies to Carl!
Carl is also the Deakin University International Manager looking after Sri Lanka so is wearing two hats for this trip. Carl has been responsible in many ways for the wonderful partnership developing between ABCD Australia and the Deakin Uni. Global Citizenship program which has seen much activity in the remote islands of Fiji over the past couple of years and is now poised to lend a hand in Sri Lanka.
