Love Volunteers needs volunteers like you to help in Ethiopia! Explore this interesting country, gain a broader perspective on life, and help those who live in poverty. Love Volunteers offers volunteer options working with children and in the medical field.
Those who decide to work with the children, ages 3 to 10, will teach a variety of subjects including English, information technology, sports development, and life skills for those who are disabled. No teaching experience is required.
Volunteers can also choose to work with health care at hospitals and clinics in Ethiopia. This project is great experience for those who are interested in working in the medical field anywhere in the world. There is a need for volunteers in all areas of medical work.

Questions & Answers
AyashaAge: 31-50FemaleSwitzerlandOtherResponse from Love VolunteersDear Ayasha, Thanks so much for your comments, it's always beneficial for us to hear first-hand how the volunteers feel about their placements. Whilst we no longer work with this particular local partner, volunteers should be aware that the beliefs and values of the local people are bound to be different from their own. It's still possible to - as you did - be of help to those in need whether you agree with their doctrines or not. While it's best for everyone if volunteers can work in the areas they choose; sometimes the local situation requires that volunteers be flexible and take the initiative, as you did, to work wherever required. These are attributes we and the local team value highly in our volunteers. Thanks again for taking the time to give to others. The Team @ Love Volunteers
