Hey fellow Assemblers! Since many of you were in attendance when I had the honor of sharing insights from Pathfinders Project, I wanted to let you know that the Humanist Service Corps is now accepting applications!
Beginning in the summer of 2015, the Humanist Service Corps will work with Ghanaian human rights organizations to address the causes and the consequences of witchcraft accusations in the Northern Region. Humanist Service Corps volunteers will collaborate with local leaders in the design and implementation of clean water, housing, healthcare, poverty abatement, infrastructure-building, and community education projects that contribute to the short-term goal of improving the standard of living in the witch camps and the long-term goal of eliminating the dynamics which lead to death or forcible and violent exile of women from their communities.
HSC will cover volunteer travel, transportation, and housing costs. Additionally, HSC will provide a living stipend to all volunteers.
