Sarah Walker

International Coordinator

Sarah works within the Operations Directorate as a support for the National Organizations. She coordinates various international projects, such as the International Volunteer Database, the Team Leaders Forum and other events, and is the point person for the International Trustees. She brings a background of literature and programme administration to the team, plus several years of experience with the A Rocha family, particularly France, Canada, the Czech Republic and the UK, which begun with two years volunteering with A Rocha France at Les Tourades. 

Sarah writes: “My background as an A Rocha volunteer helps me see us from different perspectives – as a seasoned family member, able to explain who we are and how we function, and as a newly arrived member. I’ve lived in several countries, including one where I didn’t speak the language, and discovered the joys of culture shock. I hope that makes me a thoughtful listener to potential volunteers, an administrator who can anticipate what support and information we should offer, and a helpful example of someone who has survived (and thrived from) volunteering with us. I am daily encouraged by the joint efforts of the A Rocha family to live lightly and care for this beautiful world and all that inhabits it. Be careful, A Rocha can change your life…”

Canadian by background, she and her husband, Chris Parkman, are now based at A Rocha France’s Les Courmettes centre in the hills above Côte d’Azur.
