Vacation with a Purpose~
International Volunteer Workcamps
I found this site while cruising Craigslist.
It is wonderful. So for your next Vaca check them out and see if there is meaningful work and a incredible location/experience for you to enjoy!
From their website:
Participating in an international short term volunteer project ( so called Workcamp ) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other young people from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
