When it comes to humanitarian volunteering, how does one choose the right organization that matches their interest, experience, age, and time availability? The World Volunteers guide is a useful tool for people without previous volunteering experience abroad who want to get involved in humanitarian aid projects throughout the world. The projects listed can be either short or long-term for professionals who want to take a leave of absence or for retired professionals who want to make their skills and experience available to others. For young people without volunteering experience abroad, the World Volunteers guide lists many organizations offering work-camps to help familiarize them with development and humanitarian work worldwide. Anyone who purchases the World Volunteers guide can receive free updates via the internet, plus an extended annotated list of useful Web sites that allow the reader to find hundreds of additional projects.
