Travelling is an activity that everyone enjoys, but what if it’s just as meaningful as it is fun. Volunteering is a charitable activity that allows you to travel to new places, learn about new cultures, make friends abroad, taste new cuisines, and above all, make positive differences in others lives. Volunteering is a chance to give something back. It’s an opportunity to share your skills and knowledge, meet new people, and acknowledge a diverse culture that is vastly different from your own.
Volunteering doesn’t just have to be charitable. In fact, you can combine it with something you really want to do, like travelling. Staying abroad and working for underprivileged children and adults can prove to be a very valuable learning experience. Volunteering can also benefit the economy by creating additional income for local families who provide food and shelter to volunteers. This is the kind of program that benefits everyone and bring positivity to the lives of all those involved.
Swotah Travel and Adventure have also been active in providing local children with scholarships. As a company, we earmark a portion (5%-10%) of the revenues from our trips for financing the education of children who would otherwise never be schooled.
