Any Rustic Volunteer and Travel international volunteer who wants to make a meaningful difference with the world’s most needy and at a price that won’t break the bank need not look further than Rustic Volunteer and Travel. The organization is committed to connecting volunteers and the needy at a reasonable rate, all the while not skimping when it comes to quality.
Volunteer work Kenya with Rustic Volunteer and Travel is a great way to see the country while helping it develop. You’ll also see sweeping plains, pretty beaches and wildlife galore best appreciated on a safari. Come share your kindness with orphans and children all the while enjoying a most interesting section of Africa.
In an orphanage project, you’ll see your young charges light up with smiles and energy for the slightest of reasons. By teaching schoolchildren English, you will help make it easier for these youngsters to get a job after completing their studies. Volunteers with a medical background are ever appreciated in the more remote, poorer sections of the country, where quality healthcare is hard to come by. You can also take part in critical HIV/Aids campaigns designed to counter the disturbing rates of how the disease is spread. In the unique Mini-Quest Kenya, volunteers partake of a mix of volunteering and enjoying the scenic savannas of Masai Mara Park. See how many lions you can spot. One other notable program is the week-long Faces of Kenya, which features Kenya’s best national parks—Nairobi, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara.
Volunteer work Peru for the thrill of a lifetime. You will help those in need and also learn about a fascinating culture. Volunteer projects with Rustic Volunteer and Travel take place in Cusco, Urubamba, Trujillo, and Arequipa.
One popular project is to work in an orphanage. Here, volunteers will enjoy interacting with children, teaching them and playing with them, plus looking after them in terms of making sure they eat well and brush their teeth, and bathe. Volunteers will make an even greater impact on street children, by helping place them in an orphanage where they are much better off. Teaching English is another popular project. Those with medical backgrounds are desperately called on to help out with Peruvian hospitals, clinics and special projects—the goal is to give a higher level healthcare to the country’s underprivileged. The Mini-Quest Peru introduces its partakers to the country’s best features, including Incan treasures and the wondrous Andes Mountains. They will also do some volunteering work.
