Volunteering in Colombia Spotlight: Stefan

Volunteering in Colombia

I spent two weeks volunteering in Colombia with Globalteer at their Colombia Kids project. It was one of the best experiences of my life. You can really feel that your help is needed and that you really are making a difference. It's wonderful to see kids learning from you, doesn't matter if it is the English language or geographical knowledge or even some information about your home country. 

My time volunteering in Colombia has really helped me realise that even one person can make a change and make a difference in the lives of people who really need it.

Volunteering in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Meet Rebecca, Volunteering in Siem Reap for four weeks with Globalteer at three amazing Combined Cambodia Projects. The Cambodia Women's Empowerment Project, Cambodia Community Project, and the Cambodia Clean Water Project!

"For about two years I have been planning the 5 month sabbatical which I am currently half way through. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to combine voluntary work along with travel. After falling in love with Cambodia following a few days holiday there in 2015, I decided that volunteering in Cambodia was for me!

I did a lot of research before deciding on Globalteer. Spending hours online looking at the various projects offered in Cambodia, hearing the horror stories of fake orphanages and trying to find out more specific details about what volunteering actually involves.

A growing family & a new home for our Peru Dogs!

Posted on Posted in Peru, Peru Dog Rescue

It has been a big couple of months in Peru for the Cusco Dog Shelter!

The project has recently undertaken a move to a new location. This is no easy task with so many dogs; a lot of hard work has gone into getting the new location ready & getting the dogs settled into their new home.

The land had to be cleared ready, then it was the huge task of building the new shelters for the dogs along with areas for storage and an area to prepare their food. The great news is that the new location is a lot bigger! Which means there is more room for the dogs to run around and play – and the shelter can take more dogs in, plus room for more volunteers!
