Volunteer travel vacations

As the gap between 'vacationing' and 'volunteering' decreases, the scope of volunteer vacations is widening, encompassing everything from favela football coaching to diving threatened reefs, via elephant sanctuaries and rural clinics. The message is – anyone can make a difference, whether you’re 16 or 60, and whether you have five days or five months to spare just ensure you do your research and find out who you're really helping and why.
