Hello! What better way to combine my interests in travel and volunteering than to join your group?! I'm particularly interested in opportunities in East Africa, but also have time to be involved closer to home. Looking forward to meeting you all!
I've travelled quite a bit across the US, Caribbean, and Europe. I've also been to Russia, India, Japan, China, Peru, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, and Zambia!
I've travelled to Kenya for 3 volunteer projects and will be leading trips to Thailand and Kyrgyzstan soon.
I'm interested in sharing experiences and contacts as well as identifing additional opportunities for short- and long-term volunteer projects, particularly in Africa.
Hi Tricia -- I just saw your interest in Meetups for Swahili, international travel, volunteering, etc. Check out our non-profit at www.kuleavillages.org. I live a little north of Boston in Atkinson, NH & am a Swahili student. We're working to rescue many orphans in Tanzania and Kenya. We take volunteers on 2 week 'Visit Africa' trips. We also have volunteers who help us here. If our site interests you, let me know. Deborah Brown, Exec Dir [masked]
