Reasons to Volunteer:
Some travelers are content partying their way around the world. You, however, are looking for a more substantial experience. Volunteering not only gives you the opportunity to give back, it gives you something to do, somewhere to go, and somewhere to stay. You'll still have plenty of time for exploring local ruins or having a lager down at the pub. But one word of warning, don't set out to change the world -- you'll be disappointed to learn that the world doesn't necessarily need changing. The best goal is to challenge yourself everyday, test your patience, and open your mind and heart.
By volunteering abroad you will learn so much about yourself. You will do things that you never imagined you were capable of. The biggest difference you will notice at the end of the program will not be external but will be the difference inside of yourself. In most cases residents could do your job better, faster and more efficiently. You probably won't teach the locals how to hammer a nail, but you will share your friendship with them. Most importantly, you will be changed forever because you will have a greater understanding of another culture, you will challenge your personal limits, and you will develop friendships.
Unlike paid employment, volunteering provides a more flexible schedule and varying time commitments. You may choose to participate in a work of teaching in a rural Basic School for two weeks, volunteer with kids, Youth, women, Teach and Preach the word of God in a church, Provide Basic Health care to the aged and Babying sitting etc.
