“Volunteering is not only a process of giving.”
It is rather a process of exchange. We have much to learn from the communities that we aim to support.
One of my personal aims for International Volunteers is to empower women and young girls with the access to education because that is a primary too for empowerment.
It is an honor to be part of International Volunteers team to help facilitate compassion towards fellow human beings and to encourage intercultural experiences. Growing up in a multi-cultural background I learned to respect and value the complexity of human diversity. There is much to be appreciated and celebrated about the intercultural learning process. I believe that volunteering abroad will significantly help to develop emotional intelligence as well as integrate soft skills needed to bring our societies forward.
