Hello Roya 😊

Would you please put all updates about your charity in this thread, rather than making several new ones. You can add as many updates as you like.

You can also put whatever details you want about your charity on your profile page.

The following website lists plenty of free or budget volunteering options for people wishing to. In Afrcia we just wrote on the couchsurfing website and we were soon offered places to volunteer for free in kenya and Tanzania. http://www.volunteersouthamerica.net/ Reply to this
