Sabiha Khan is dedicated to helping others through volunteering as a resident of Tampa, FL. She has shared seven amazing volunteer opportunities around the world that are essential in offering help to worthwhile causes, people in need, and the wider community.
There are multiple kinds of volunteer programs around the world. Choosing a program that’s ideal for you may sometimes turn out to be tougher than selecting the location. It’s highly important that you find a well-suited program, which will ensure you enjoy your volunteer program experience.
Sabiha Khan’s seven ways you can travel the world as well as engage in volunteer work simultaneously include community building, working with children, education, marine and wildlife conservation, public health awareness, multi-country volunteer programs, and women’s rights, health & welfare. These are important and easy ways to meet new people and also strengthen your ties to that local community and broaden your support network. Furthermore, they connect you to people who have common interests and passions and who could go on to become great friends.
Volunteering is an important and interesting way to meet people who you might not normally connect with: people from different age groups, ethnicities or social groups. Because volunteering is open to everyone, it allows you to meet a wide variety of people from all sorts of walks of life, something that can only open your eyes further.
Doing good for others and the community helps to create a natural sense of accomplishment. And working as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity, helping to boost your self-confidence. Once you’ve decided to start spending your time contributing to a volunteer program, be conscious about how your money is being spent, who gets to really benefit from it and understand ways to connect the knowledge gained from these volunteer experiences with issues in your very own community.
