When it comes to humanitarian volunteering, how does one choose the right organization that matches their interest, experience, age and time availability? This guide is a great tool for people without previous volunteering experience abroad who want to get involved in humanitarian aid projects throughout the world.
The projects listed can be either short or long term for professionals who want to take a leave of absence or for retired professionals who want to make their skills and experience available to help others.
For young people without volunteering experience abroad, the World Volunteers guide lists many organizations offering work-camps to help familiarize them with development and humanitarian work worldwide.
The guide is a one-time purchase. Anyone who purchases the guide can receive free updates via the Internet, plus an extended annotated list of useful websites that allow the reader to find hundreds of additional projects. 256 pages. Softcover. 2008.
