Volunteer in a group!
Is it your first time to volunteer abroad? So you will probably feel more comfortable going with a group, with no need to worry about travelling around the country on your own. Read our blog and find out what are the differences of travelling in a group versus going on your own.
We would love to encourage more people to become volunteers abroad and we think that joining an organized group is a great idea!
Together with a friendly travel agency NO LIMITS we organised the first trip to NEPAL to volunteer with a group in September 2016. You can read the interview with the participants of our trip on our blog - HERE.
Read some of the stories and advices of our volunteers to Nepal:
„I like helping people, travelling and exploring the world in a ‘non-tourist’ way. I know that you cannot change the world with one trip, but you can try to make it a bit better place for at least a few people. Also, I thought that it would be a good idea to spend my vacations with people, with whom I share similar values (...) Another aspect of this trip which I really value is the possibility to live in the house of a local family, who seeing how we were involved in our volunteering project – opened up and didn’t feel uncomfortable to carry on with their daily activities as usual. They didn’t pretend anything. Living in a hotel or in an apartment rented through AirB&B always has some commercial accent. At Krishna’s – we didn’t feel anything of that.” - Marta
„Travelling in a group definitely reduces the stress level ;-) and even experienced travellers will feel very comfortable in Nepal. I heard somewhere this sentence, which I still hold fresh in my memory: we know ourselves only as much as we have experienced. I often catch myself thinking about a particular situation and feeling all kinds of doubts, even fear, and most often I am very pleasantly surprised by reality ;-) This is exactly one of the reasons why I think it is really worth travelling – to learn more about ourselves and discover our boundaries.” - Małgosia
„It’s very natural, that we are afraid of what we do not know. But that’s good, because it keeps us alert in case of danger. What I can advise is this: trust the organizer of your trip. Ask them questions so they can address your doubts. Overcome your fear”. - Monika
