Latest Volunteer & Intern Travel News

My first two weeks in South Africa, flew by really fast. I spent a lot of time with my new friends and they dragged me along everywhere they went. It was a bit overwhelming in the beginning, but it actually turned out to be a really good thing. I got some good impressions of life in South Africa and the volunteer house. Most volunteers have been here for a while and know all the nice local bars and places to go to have a good time.

Rubbish and pollution are major problems in South African township communities. Wherever you go you will see trash laying around on the street.  

The public waste collection is not working properly and all attempts from the government to solve the rubbish problem have not been successful. 

When you decide to go volunteering overseas you have to make an awful lot of decisions, like what organization you go with, which country to go to, what kind of project to work in, and of course, where to stay.

Often your only accommodation option is a volunteer house. This can be a big house somewhere close to your projects, where you live with other volunteers from your project and maybe also other projects.
