Volunteer Blast August 2022

Volunteer Blast August 2022

This month sees the last few weeks of South Asian Heritage Month, and we would like to wish you a happy period of celebration! For those who may be unfamiliar, the month was established to honour and celebrate South Asian history and culture. It is an opportunity for everyone to appreciate the countries in South Asia and learn new things about their heritage. This year’s theme has been “Journeys of The Empire.” You can read more about South Asian Heritage Month here:
