Why volunteer in Honduras

I got asked by many people "why shall I rather prefer to volunteer in one country than travelling around the world?"

There are a few reasons why volunteer in Honduras:

Volunteering in Honduras shows that you are willing to step outside your comfort zone to make a difference to the lives of others. Employers appreciate this and they value the life experience, soft skills and cultural understanding that you will gain through volunteering. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to take time out of your regular routine and think about what it is you really want to do with your life.

Working in another country will provide you with the opportunity to gain knowledge, experience and skills which you may not have been able to acquire at home. The obvious example is learning a foreign language much faster than you could at home by immersing yourself into the language and culture. In addition, by volunteering in your field of interest you will have the opportunity to learn new ways to approach different problems, and you will gain valuable work experience in a new environment.

Volunteering is very different to being a tourist because you will spend a significant amount of time in one place and you will be working on a daily basis with local people. This provides an invaluable opportunity to learn about different cultures, develop an understanding of the issues facing host communities and develop a sense of global citizenship.

Das Interesse an einem freiwilligen Arbeitseinsatz in Honduras mit unserer Organisation SWHO hat in letzter Zeit stark zugenommen.

Aus diesem Grund haben wir uns entschieden, die Informationen auf unserem Blog in Deutsch wie auch in Englischer Sprache zu verfassen. Alte Posts wurden nicht übersetzt. Danke fürs Verständnis.
