Volunteering Abroad – a Debate

From funds raised by volunteers the centre now has an important piece of physio rehab equipment...a tilt table

Volunteering abroad can produce remarkable experiences for volunteers and the community in which they offer their services but is it a simple decision on the correctness of the volunteering gesture? I have spent a long time debating the issue of volunteer work in foreign countries and have found it really difficult to come to any fixed conclusions. I am therefore presenting this blog post by way of opening a debate on the subject and canvassing ... Read More »

Our Choice of Cause – Khagendra New Life Disabled Centre

Nepal_Disabled_Associationn_Kathmandu_Nepal4

I have so many articles to write about as a consequence of my Asian journey to date and the backlog builds daily. But the trip itself has not just been a self centred pleasure affair even though I have certainly gained so much from it. Di, my partner, and I have been searching for deserving causes to provide some long term support to; both in the country of origin and remotely from the UK. This ... Read More »

Volunteering and voluntary work is an activity researched by many of us, young and old alike, wishing to do something meaningful and worthwhile either at home or abroad. This can take the form of working with charities, animals, nature or often the most sought after; working with local less fortunate people and children, this time in a less well off foreign country. Sadly there is one thing which often curbs our enthusiasm to venture abroad ... Read More »

We are immensely proud to be supporting this cause in our own small way but also wish to create a message encouraging you to also become involved. If you are reading ... Read More »

Orangutan_01_Borneo_Fundraiser

This weekend I sit in a shack at Black Point indulging in good food, wine, listening to music & swimming in the ocean with three of my girlfriends having a peaceful break from my hectic life. This is a stark contrast to the past six months of my life which have… well, keep reading and you may understand. I have wanted to write about my time in Indonesia for a while now but I have ...
