In less than six months, seventy volunteers, professionals, students, stay-at-home mothers, artists, accountants, educators, website designers, animators, graphic designers, bakers, nurses and many more people interested in the organisation had been placed within Windgap’s services. A year after launching the program, the number of volunteers including students had reached one hundred.
