I have always been interested in volunteering, charity and development work. I have taken part in projects in Thailand, Cambodia and Australia. In Taipei, I regularly volunteered with Harmony Home, a centre for women and children who have or whose lives have been affected by HIV. I also helped out at Animals Taiwan and TSPCA whenever I could and loved being involved with their annual fundraisers and events.
I am passionate about international development, and the role that volunteers play. I hope to learn how to maximise the efforts of foreign volunteers, as well as honing my fundraising skills here and to share my experiences with you!
After spending 4 years teaching English and volunteering in Taiwan and Vietnam, I have decided to move back to the UK to pursue a more permanent job in the charity sector. I also plan to expand this blog and make it a good solid reference for those wanting to get into volunteering. My focus will still mainly be overseas volunteering but I also plan to volunteer in London and share information for that here too. Please feel free to comment on my posts, or alternatively, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
