Why Volunteering? Why us? – Part 4
What are the things you should bear in mind when you decide to volunteer:
A volunteer should be ready to encounter a different worldview from the one he or she has.
Many of the ideas you have about sexuality, ideology, politics might be seen completely different in some other part of the world.
You can meet people that are not going to share your views.
Be prepared for openness for diversities and differences.
Since many of volunteers seek for opportunities abroad, it is wise to be respectful for cultural, religious, ethnic and even sexual diversity.
It implies sometimes wearing something you shouldn’t normally do or adjusting your habits.
There are many other things that will show up while volunteering that you cannot anticipate. It is always good to be flexible and accept the challenges.
If there is something you cannot accept, at least adapt to it to an extend it doesn’t bother you.
There could be many mosquitos that drive you crazy, for example. You cannot accept them, but you can always do the means to make them bother you less.
