it depends..you don;t necessarily have to go overseas to do a good deed. im surprised to hear so many people always wanting to go abroad when they could easily volunteer and make a difference in their own communities.
That seems like good advice to me, Flow & Hustle. If you do want to go overseas, I'd recommend going with an established group, like a tour operator skilled in volunteer tours. You don't want to show up on your own and try to help. You might end up making trouble if you do that.
volunteer at home
dont know much about them but my impression of the Peace Corps is that it seems like a "missionary" imperialistic organization like many others out there...i've lost count the amount of organizations dedicated to Africa who are there to simply make money. Like the last poster said, i would stick with volunteering back home since there are many folks who could with some help too...charity starts at home
