I am going to have about two months (Oct5-Dec 10th 2004) towards the end of my travels that i would like to devote to volunteering somewhere. Has anyone participated or are currently participating in anything they like? I speak functional Spanish, have studied Physics and Engineering, and don´t mind manual labor.
I work here in Rio / Brazil in a favela (kind of shantytown, but very peculiar to Brazilian culture and History) as volunteer. We're not really prepared to receive voluntary work, but if you feel your options are not good enough, send me an e-mail to [email protected] . It will be a pleasure to introduce you to our work here, and maybe you will find a way to help my people.
I dont know if you would like to do some work at a B&B and Fruit/Coffee farm helping tourists and a bit of gardening maybe . If you like Dogs even better (I cannot afford pay but free room (Nice ) and gives young people the chance to learn the tourist business for small B&B's like mine
