Volunteering Overseas

I have talked in the past about volunteering at a local orphanage.  It has been a very rewarding experience so far.  The kids have really taken to us, and I always have a great time when I am there.  I have been looking into other volunteer opportunities for when I decide to leave South Korea.  One of the blogs I have read for awhile follows a Canadian woman, Kirsty, around as she travels and works.  A lot of her time is spent with volunteering projects working with Hands On Disaster Response, and it has been quite inspiring.

Kirsty’s blog can be found at   For the past few months she has been working on an ebook detailing volunteering opportunities worldwide.  She goes into depth about different types of volunteering, choosing the right organization, finding opportunities, and other things needed to get your trip off the ground such as visas and insurance.  I highly recommend anyone who is interested in volunteering overseas to purchase the book.  It is only $14 and the money goes to a good cause (Hands On Disaster Response).  You can purchase the ebook here.  While you are there, take a look around Kirsty’s blog.  You won’t be disappointed.

‘Till next time,


I don’t get any profit from this.  I am simply wanting to share a resource I have found to be useful.

I taught ESL for three years in South Korea and now I am looking to set out on a new journey after just finishing my teaching certification in the US. I hope to continue teaching and traveling and you can follow his journeys here.
