So, I have been using a site called Volunteer World. https://www.volunteerworld.com
It’s like a database that shows you opportunities, very cheap and it tells you where the money goes. You also contact the placement directly.
Just wanted to know if anyone else has used this site? And if its good?
This might be useful: https://www.gapyear.com/articles/199196/the-importance-of-ethics-while-volunteering
A friend of mine used http://www.volunteerworld.com in order to get in touch with a local NGO in South Africa. Currently she is volunteering at a sanctuary close to Pretoria.
I asked her about this directory and she told me that it was quite easy to get in touch with the project. I think she was quite happy with this page.
Hope I could help you out
