I found this video http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8299780.stm which made me start thinking, again, about volunteering. Just imagine how much there is out there in the world (or around where we live for that matter) that would be at least a tiny bit better if we gave it some of our time. I guess this young man has many many changed lives “on his conscience”.

Of course you don’t have to start your own school, or some other huge project of your own (well, this was actually a very small project from the beginning).

There are plenty of volunteering organizations which you just can join and be part of a movement that gives the world a nudge in a positive direction.

If you want to get an idea of what there is to choose from, here’s a volunteering site that has loads of great information:www.oneworld365.org

Also, looking into this things really make you appreciate and being grateful for what you have, doesn’t it? At least it’s that way for me.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

In a recent post, we told you about our visitor, Tilo, from Brazil. He was staying with us for some time to get a chance to practise his Swedish (his mother is Swedish). Tilo and his family have this fantastic place “Sempre Verde” (which means “always green”), some 90 km from Recife, Brazil. It’s situated on the edge of the Rainforest with a tropical climate.

You can visit this beautiful, ecological place as a paying guest and also as a Volunteer. As a Volunteer you stay at their place and then help the farmers in the area in different ways.

Malin, the mother, has started an Environment and Handicraft School for kids and young people in the area. As a Volunteer you participate in the work in this school as well.

You can read more about it at: www.sempreverde.tur.br

So, if you’re interesting in traveling and giving some of your time and energy at the same time, here’s a great opportunity to do this.You can read more about it in the Volunteering section.
