BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEER
Change Yourself:
By volunteering abroad you will learn so much about yourself. You will do things that you never imagined you were capable of. The biggest difference you will notice at the end of the program will not be external but will be the difference inside of yourself. In most cases residents could do your job better, faster and more efficiently. You probably won’t teach the locals how to hammer a nail, but you will share your friendship with them. Most importantly, you will be changed forever because you will have a greater understanding of another culture, you will challenge your personal limits, and you will develop friendships.
Build your Resume:
Many employers value the volunteers above all else. If you have volunteered on your resume it shows that you are flexible, patient and committed. Many travelers know where they want to go, but don’t know what to do once they get there. Volunteering abroad gives your travels a purpose and an itinerary.
Affordable Travel and fundraising:
There are few travel experiences that are cheaper then volunteering abroad. Most Volunteer placement organizations charge a fee. The fee will typically cover room/board, orientation, and the program itself. Many volunteers cover their expenses by letter writing campaigns to family and friends, contributions from churches or student organizations and other donation driven efforts.
Fundraising is a simple way to pay for a volunteer excursion abroad. By writing to family members, friends, and possibly teachers about your opportunity abroad, you may be surprised by the giving from these individuals to make the volunteer opportunity happen. Certainly one of the best sources for small scholarships or donations is local community groups tied to the region you are going to. Maybe you can perform a slide show for them upon return, or speak at a function they sponsor, and they may have funds to help you help their homeland community.
“Many organizations will provide you with sample fundraising letters from past volunteers. And visiting your church or local organizations with ties to your destination is also typically a good source of financing. Students have asked me, “Why do I have to pay to go work overseas?” Unless you are a doctor or engineer or you are planning to spend a year or two volunteering there is probably a fee to be paid.
Perhaps you are going to build a school in the rural south India, the volunteer organization has to pay for building supplies, arrange the logistics of the program, provide home stays in the local village, pay wages for local staff and cover for some administration costs. If the only objective was to build the school they would be better served hiring local craftsmen at a low cost and complete the project in a short time. The goal of the organization is more likely centered on making a real difference at the rural level and also providing a cultural experience for you in rural India.
