7 Incredible (but affordable) Volunteering Projects 4

Who of us has not dreamed of taking a break from work, travelling, and changing the World? For many it will always remain just this: a dream. The cost, the thought of organising such a trip, and the simple fear of the unknown, will forever deter them. But even for inexperienced travelers, the trip need not be scary or expensive! For less than half the price of the average London hotel room per night (£136/night) you can explore the far reaches of the world; experience life in a way you never have before; and learn invaluable new skills from wildlife rehabilitation to teaching English abroad.
