Tales of a Silver Haired Volunteer

Tales of a Silver Haired Volunteer

When she retired, Carole Howard took a surprising – some might call it radical – giant step out of her comfort zone. With little idea of what to expect, she overcame her usual risk-aversion and volunteered with her husband to be management consultants for a non-profit in Senegal, West Africa. The experience was so life-affirming they did it again the following year in Uganda. And then three more times after that, in Namibia, Thailand, and Ghana, each time for two months. Her adventure was simultaneously an outward journey (of miles and cultures) and an inward journey (of small victories and self-discovery). While she knew she couldn’t save the world, she found that doing one thing for one person or organization in one place is the next best thing. TALES OF A SILVER-HAIRED VOLUNTEER is a personal memoir that is inspiring, written with a light (sometimes hilarious) touch. She now knows the answers to the questions she posed above...... and a whole lot more.
