Is it the right time to volunteer abroad?
Some travel restrictions are lifted now that COVID-19 vaccinations are out and the number of cases has dropped. If you’ve been a traveler or have a passion for traveling, then the travel bug is probably gnawing at you! This past year, it’s been nearly impossible to go to any other country.
There is no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone, all over the world. But as with so many things, it has hit those already at a social disadvantage much harder than the well-off. In April and May, we made the most of easing Covid-19 restrictions to check in with the rural communities around Cusco, to see if there’s anything they need us to help with. And it kept coming back to education.
Lending a helping hand and volunteering not only helps the world become a better place, but it also has positive influence on your own wellbeing. For many, this might be a bit surprising, but those who actively volunteer regularly are no strangers to this information. What can you do to get involved and start volunteering regularly? Surprisingly, the answer is read some books.
