The Road to the Horizon

For some time I have been following the posts of WFP Peter on his blog ‘The Road to the Horizon‘.  He’s got some great stuff and I strongly encourage you to take a look.  One page that I only recently read, strangely enough, is the About page.  (I am not sure how I missed this as it is usually the first thing I head for.)  In any event, Peter’s About page has a great summary of what I think drives most of us to aid work.  Not only was he not getting what he needed back in Belgium he also had a deep-seated need to help people.  That, in my opinion, is the prime motivating force for most dedicated aid workers.

Peter’s also got a great page on finding work in our field.  Check out his ‘Rumble: So you want to be an Aidworker, hey?‘  It starts with a great WFP promo video.  Thanks, Peter!
