Donating your time to a worthy cause while you travel has become very popular. To get to share your knowledge and skills with people from another part of the world is a special gift you can give. It is also a way to connect with the culture on a deeper level than you typically can as a tourist. Volunteering is often the highlight of one's trip with lifetime-long friendships sometimes developing as a result. Here we list some programs that we know about. If you know of a worthy cause that could be included here, or have a comment on your experience with one that we have highlighted, let us know. We can be reached by email, see the CONTACT US tab.
