Hello all! Well I'm planning on doing this volunteer program and I'm stuck between these countries...Estonia, Morocco, and Nepal. The program will be at the end of July and beginning of August...so a little worried about the weather in Nepal... I can only choose one and I love all descriptions of the volunteer program. Any suggestions or comments? Thanks!!!
I've never been to been to Nepal, but my favourite from the other two is definitely Morrocco. Both fantastic places but for me the people and the culture shock of Morrocco made it one of my favourite destinations in the world. I envy your problem, whichever country you choose will be fantastic!
There are currently some security issues in Nepal. The US government urges its citizens not to go outside of Kathmandu.
Might be worth thinking about and researching into before you go.
Morocco may be the more satisfactory option for a host of reasons, and then there's the safety issue Maia refers to... go for Morocco!
sorry one more post... what about the czech republic? after reading the link ive decided against nepal (THANK YOU SO MUCH) but Im considering listing czech...
I vote for Morocco - Czech Republic is in Europe and while it would certainly broaden your horizon to volunteer there, the cultural differences from the USA to Morocco are larger than the differences from the USA to Czech Republic. Both the Czech Republic and the USA are Western countries so if you want something completely different, go to Morocco.
Depends what you are looking for in the experience. If you want a culture shock... Morocco (I found it particularly uncomfortable as a woman) if you want somewhere cool to hang out, Czech is great fun.
