Volunteer Abroad giant has taking another step in consolidating its online position by adding new programs to one of the most complete array of volunteering programs on the internet.
Dallas-based Globalcrossroad.com provides volunteer programs to the most extensive choice of destinations to Africa, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
Demand for volunteer in Africa destinations have soared in the last three years, which prompted Global Crossroad to include the most popular destination such as Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Lesotho.
Volunteer programs and project are now available for all the African destinations to include teaching English, work with disadvantage children, health projects, conservation programs as well as HIV/AIDS education. This year alone the number of travelers that signed up to volunteer in Kenya's wildlife conservation program soared 35 percent. Participation in the KWS veterinary services department has been an attractive option to volunteers seeking to participate in meaningful volunteering and display of social responsibility.
Volunteer abroad participants will always work as team members, alongside KWS staff members and researchers. There will always be someone to guide participants on what to do as well as provide assignments and compare notes. The work is usually spontaneous and often changes according to the demands and needs of the various departments within the parks which makes programs like volunteer in Africa one of the most exciting endeavors for participants.
"Volunteer abroad tourism and increase awareness in global warming and environmental conservation issues have been the real motivators in the spike demand," says Jeremy D.T. program manager at Global Crossroad. Volunteer Abroad partner site, Institute of Field Research Expeditions (IFRE volunteers), has also followed suit to add more destinations and programs.
IFRE Volunteers, who has extensive Volunteer in Africa programs, has also seen its non-governmental programs increase in popularity, especially in the health care field and HIV/AIDS projects.
