Health care volunteering in Kenya
Memorable parts? It is too early to say whether this holiday was life changing but for me, it was a homecoming as I used to live in Kenya and felt a mixture of feelings - sad at the corruption that exists in daily life at police checks, etc. but most of all humbled at the generosity, dignity and hospitality that I found in and from the locals around the project where I worked. These are people who have very little materially and work very hard to make ends meet and yet there is a joy and... (more)Jane Edington

Health care & sports volunteering in Uganda

If youíre planning a volunteering trip, whether itís a 3 month volunteer placement in a remote corner of the world or a weekend somewhere closer to home, itís always good to know what to expect and the best way to do things. Our friends at people & places have helped us to write this guide on responsible volunteering. Responsible volunteers are more likely to be a positive presence, a source of inspiration and empowerment. Poorly prepared volunteers who impose their own agenda and cultural norms, failing to include local people in decisions, can leave behind more problems than they solve, making life even tougher for economically poor people. Let's start at the beginning Ė youíre already committed to responsible travel and now you want to volunteer, but how can you be sure of being a responsible volunteer?
