Individual volunteering projects are of a different nature compared to international group workcamps. The volunteer’s involvements in these projects are projected on a longer-term basis for a more sustainable impact. These projects have flexible starting and ending dates and can last anytime from 1-12 months. Volunteers will work closely with the host community, driving change in areas where they need it the most. Along the way, you will get to immerse in the locals’ way of life and eventually gain a deeper understanding of the country and its culture.
Furthermore, most organizations would have programs to link you up with other volunteers. This is also a perfect opportunity to make many new friends from different countries; many volunteers even arrange to travel together during their free time!
