Volunteering in Asia forum

New forum: Volunteering in Asia

Posted by somtam2000 on 25/10/2010 at 08:29 admin

A growing number of people are curious about volunteering in Southeast Asia. Curious about what is involved, what it costs and who are reputable organisations to volunteer with. So, here's a new section of the forum to discuss these matters.

A couple of pointers:
a) If you're undecided on the pay vs no pay debate, you should read this discussion.

b) This is a forum for travellers to discuss the options -- not for volunteer organisations to spin their spiel. Solicitations and advertorial posts will be deleted -- and that means you Danang Kids!

c) Lastly, if you're looking for a good backgrounder on volunteering, look no further than Kirsty Henderson's excellent The Underground Guide to International Volunteering. It is an excellent read and an indispensible source for someone who wants a guide to volunteering overseas (it has a global focus). Worth every penny.
