Volunteering is an experience many of us ponder but still only the minority actually partake in. To be able to offer our skills, services and time to benefit the ones in need is a heart-warming thing, especially while travelling. However, the idea of volunteering and actually saying ‘I want to volunteer’ is very different to actually volunteering for real.
