Having traced my African ancestors to Cameroon, I’ve just signed up to go and do some volunteer work in a project out there. I’m going with an organisation called Original Volunteers. The project runs a school, a health facility and a women’s empowerment service. I’m planning to go for a month later in about ten
I’ve never done any volunteering of this kind abroad, so already its feeling like a massive adventure and I haven’t even left home yet.
I’d love to hear about your volunteering experiences and whether you’ve ever heard of Original Volunteers, or used them.
