Volunteering in another country is an amazing experience. Not only will you be offering genuine help to a less fortunate community, you will also meet some wonderful people, have the opportunity to travel and gain priceless life and CV experience.
There are now hundreds of charity projects running throughout the world, whether you want to teach less fortunate children in Europe, help with wild life conservation in Asia or build schools and houses in Africa, there is a charity project out there for you.
You just need to decide which charity project most interests you and where you are willing to travel. The internet is full of websites and organisations that can organise the whole trip for you, but just make sure that you fully research the country, project and website before you commit to anything.
Once you have worked on a charity project, the people, country and charity will remain close to your heart forever, it is always a wonderful and humbling experience.
To give you some inspiration, here are our top 10 volunteering missions;
- Wildlife conservation – if you love animals, there are opportunities to work with wild and endangered animals all over the globe.
