In the last few years, we have grown wonderfully and organically big! Our community list now has more than 1,400 contributors.

For new members, it can be difficult to navigate Global Voices and find the special something — the connections that break virtual walls and bind us together in real life. Those special connections sometimes started from a chat ping, a comment on a post, or a question about a translation and led to long conversations over Skype, and in some cases exploring a new city together! This happened for many of us naturally when we were a smaller organization. Can we bring that intimate beauty of Global Voices to new contributors?

This experiment aims to see if we can design closer interactions between old GVers and new GVers. Are you interested in being matched with a buddy from within the GV community? Then please fill out this form.
