Volunteer and take part in social work abroad to help many people in need. As a social work volunteer you will primarily focus on social welfare policy and social work practise in underdeveloped countries, leading to a deeper understanding of an otherwise unknown part of the world.
As a social work volunteer you could be involved in defining social and economic issues, hinging development in the native area and assisting in creating strategies to combat major issues such as homelessness, hunger, medical care, education and more. Some programs include fundraising and organising events to raise awareness of current living conditions for the local people. Day to day activities include care work with neglected children, giving community classes focusing on safe sex, educating about the spread of diseases and more.
