Opportunities to volunteer with Women's and Youth projects range from abuse shelters, to orphanages, street youth centres, and health care facilities. Fundamentally, these programs revolve around compassion and caring.
Perhaps Mother Teresa said it best with, "Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat."
Your efforts include working with an oft-forgotten and overlooked segment of society, and your participation addresses several key needs including health and wellness, education and empowerment.
These are programs that require varying degrees of emotional preparedness. For those of us that are ready to assist in knocking down social walls, and build new bridges, than these opportunities are made for you.
