What is an economic way to engage in volunteer work in Africa or South America without investing much money?
I would really like to go either to Africa or South America this summer. I would love to engage in any volunteer activities. There are lots of agencies on-line offering just that, however, most charge you several thousands just for a two-weeks placement plus air fare and other administrative fees. I would appreciate if someone can suggest a good no-cost or little cost way for foreign volunteer work. Thank you in advance.
