Monitoring cheetahs in the,Namibian savannah with,BiosphereE xpeditions. 01 International,Volunteering,an Overview, Time is money How often have you heard that said Perhaps it came to mind as you. spent yet another late night in the office trying to meet a deadline or perhaps you work in. a profession where your time is billed in blocks of 15 minutes Maybe you ve just retired. having worked hard for years in return for an annual salary Unless you re a professional. parent the chances are you re used to being paid for the work you do And whatever your. circumstances you probably consider your time a precious commodity. So why give your time for free Or as is the case with the majority of international. volunteering opportunities why pay for the privilege of working for nothing This chapter. offers a broad cross section of answers to these questions. Think globally act locally was a phrase coined in 1972 by Ren Dubos an adviser to. the UN Conference on the Human Environment Although the phrase initially referred to. P H O T O W W W B I O S P H E R E E X P E D I T I O N S O R G. looking after our environment it touched a global nerve and came to mean acting locally. in any worthwhile capacity Then 12 years later Bob Geldof and Midge Ure formed Band. Aid and challenged the world not only to think globally but act globally as well and. raised money for famine relief in Ethiopia Whatever you think of this campaign and. subsequent ones such as Make Poverty History the actions of Geldof and Ure ignited. high level debate about world inequality The ongoing efforts of many ensure that such. imbalances are kept in the global media spotlight,Book 1 indb 8 3 5 2013 3 21 27 PM. 01 International Volunteering an Overview Why Volunteer. Buying white wristbands and donating money from the comfort of your lounge room to. send abroad is one thing Actually giving up your time and going to a poorer part of the. world to contribute your knowledge skills or labour is quite another But this is exactly. what an increasing number of people around the globe are choosing to do with their holi. days during gap years on career breaks or upon retirement. However the more popular international volunteering becomes the more difficult it is to. pinpoint where to go what to do and which organisation you want to volunteer with For. starters the sheer number of volunteering opportunities today can be overwhelming Then. there s the problem that not all volunteering is good volunteering There are plenty of. volunteer organisations that are not meeting or responding to local needs not working in. proper partnership with host communities and certainly not working towards sustainable. solutions And let s face it no one wants to become that volunteer who has just built a. bridge where no bridge was needed, Volunteering abroad should be the best thing you ve ever done but the onus is on you to. act responsibly do the research and find a volunteer programme that works both for you. and for the host community This book aims to equip you with all the tools to do just that. One volunteer Linda Walsh who worked with street children in Rio de Janeiro for Task. Brasil p170 urges, Go and volunteer Love the experience even when there are times when you feel unappreci.
ated tired fed up or lost with the language No matter what if you throw yourself whole. heartedly into it you will love it and it will do more for you than you could ever imagine. As Clodagh O Brien who volunteered in Borneo with the Orangutan Foundation UK. p175 succinctly puts it, Every insect bite cut argument and awful bus journey was well worth it. Why Volunteer, This is a good question and one you need to think very carefully about The most common. reason to volunteer is the desire to give something back Vikki Cole who volunteered on. an environmental project with Trekforce p115 in Borneo explains. Without sounding clich d I really wanted to be able to look back on my life and to have. done something of substance that didn t directly benefit just me. Jacqueline Hill who volunteered with Voluntary Service Overseas VSO p94 building. management capacity with local NGOs in Bangladesh had similar feelings. It had been a long term dream I had a vague plan that I d spend the first 20 years of my. career earning for myself and the next 20 giving something back. Wanting to help others wishing to do good and hoping to make a difference are all im. portant reasons to volunteer But nine times out of ten they re not enough to make you to. feel that your time was well spent there need to be other reasons And as you can imagine. there are plenty to choose from Mike Laird who travelled with the Scientific Exploration. Society p136 to work on scientific archaeological and community aid projects in Bolivia. lists a well balanced mix of altruistic and personal motivations for volunteering. To see the delight on people s faces when they realise they now have a clean and safe water. P H O T O W W W B I O S P H E R E E X P E D I T I O N S O R G. supply or better school facilities To know that they will benefit from these for years to. come The personal benefits are almost too many to mention being exposed to new cul. tures seeing new places and sharing in great experiences making new and lasting friend. ships and discovering a bit more about myself That apart I also got fitter lost weight and. felt terrific when I came home, Mike picks up on a key point for travellers volunteering is an excellent way to get under. the skin of a country and come to grips with a different culture The cultural exchange.
