Despite the recent negative media surrounding Romania regarding the new immigration laws, volunteer travel company Projects Abroad says it is still a popular choice for an extended stay.
Projects Abroad have volunteer and work opportunities in over 25 worldwide destinations, with many people favouring Romania as a place to volunteer whilst on a gap year or career break. In reality, it really isn’t hard to see why. You only have to look at the Projects Abroad UK website to see the vast amount the country has to offer those looking for a holiday with a difference. It’s lush green mountains, historical medieval towns and unique Latin culture, along with it’s warm and friendly people, guarantee a great experience.
Another great thing is the wealth of variety offered to volunteers here. Programs can last from just 2 weeks if you are on a tight schedule, to a several months if you want a really immersive experience. Whilst the need for aid in vital sectors, such as medicine and care, remains strong, there are other ways to get involved. If you have a creative flair, why not opt to teach drama? Leading workshops and assisting in preparation for a local production is not only a lot of fun, it is also a great way for you to pass on your English language skills. Similarly, if you are a sporty type, you could help provide much needed physical education within schools in the city of Brasov. Coaching team sports such as football and basketball will help improve confidence and promote healthy living to the local community.
These are just some of the many opportunities available through Projects Abroad. All prices on the website include accommodation, food and insurance for the duration of your stay. In addition, they have over 600 trained staff worldwide, meaning should you get into any difficulties you are never far away from a Projects Abroad representative.
