Ever considered volunteering abroad as a family? It’s a concept growing in popularity – spending part of your time on an overseas holiday helping out on long-term sustainable projects, kids and all! Family volunteer trips are wonderful way to introduce the concept of altruism to your children in a very hands-on way, showing them the power that one person has to help another, no matter how small.
So many of our volunteers fundraise to cover the cost of their trip, but it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start and what to do! Fear not, however – I’m here to talk you through potential ideas to help you meet your fundraising goals. I’ve rounded up some of the more interesting and unique fundraising ideas, as undertaken by our very own Projects Abroad volunteers, and I hope that you’ll find some inspiration for your own money-raising initiatives.
Jill Streeten and Sheena Kelly, older volunteers who chose to venture overseas with Projects Abroad, tell us about their experiences and give their advice to prospective volunteers. “It is a wonderful way to immerse oneself in the country's culture and volunteers are extremely well looked after by host families and Project Abroad staff,” says Jill.
