Volunteer Work - Make a Difference in the Areas of Education, Health, or Social Services
As a volunteer, you can make a difference by supporting and contributing to a sustainable solution designed by the community and for the community. Volunteer work is in the areas of education, and social services and community development. No prior experience or specific skill is required. You will learn what challenges they face and see how your work furthers their goals. You will also have the chance to create projects of your own. The connection with the people you work with and for each day will generate ideas that you can suggest to the staff. Implementation depends on circumstances on the ground at the time of your arrival as well as your creativity. Your experience and opinion in any given field will be much appreciated by the staff and quite possibly make a difference in the lives of villagers.
