Hero of the month
Weston showed up at A.I.R. Tel Aviv prepared to scrub floors and wash windows if that was how he could best serve. He just wanted to play a small part in helping end human trafficking. The team at A.I.R. was working hard on their online shop so Weston found himself joining them with much dedication and motivation even though he had never done anything like that before. Thanks to his incredible support, the new A.I.R. Shop is pretty much ready to go online and we have truly profited from his knowledge and helpfulness.
Weston decided to volunteer with A.I.R. in order to experience a new and different environment, away from his daily routine as a masters student in business and economy at ETH Zuerich. He wanted to challenge himself to discover a new culture, country and work, while at the same time doing something with a social impact. He also hoped to learn more about human trafficking and the challenges the victims face. This he did, as he got to spend time with some of our program participants, hearing their stories and unique perspectives on life, their worldview and their hopes for the future.
Working with A.I.R. was a great experience for him. Trying to figure out how to get a website up and running challenged him. But doing it with a fun group of equally challenged people left him very content with his volunteer experience at A.I.R. Tel Aviv. He also got his fair share of insight into life in Tel Aviv, learned to love the different food, figured how to do laundry in the city and had to be oh so flexible when it came to accommodation. His highlights were the community atmosphere at the center, sharing meals and the warmth of everyone opening up their homes to him. He found great people to hang out with outside of the office and made new friends.
We want to thank Weston for his great help and hope to welcome him back to A.I.R. someday soon.
