Maldives is a fascinating place which cannot be called anything else but a Paradise. It is one of the most famous getaway places for stars from all over the world. Coupled with beautiful beaches and almost inhabitant islands, Maldives offers a wide variety of volunteer abroad programs. None of these volunteer projects require any extraordinary skills or knowledge so almost anybody can participate and contribute to making a world a better place. It really doesn’t matter whether you are young or old, American or Italian, retired or a student at a university, there is always volunteer work for you to get involved in and Maldives happens to be a perfect place for that!
The best thing is, no matter how involved in the project you are, or what project you participate in – you will always be only steps away from the beautiful white powdery sand beaches, bright blue ocean and palm trees that will provide a nice shady area for you to rest in when you need a break.
Nevertheless, each volunteer is very welcome by the people of Maldives community. The local people support volunteer abroad programs and will make you feel like at home, so you won’t ever have to worry about being a stranger.
There is a wide range of volunteer work that needs to be done in this community. Often times volunteers find themselves involved in painting, construction, improving buildings and various structures, remodeling, and other misc. work around the community or at local schools. Volunteers abroad in Maldives also work on creating safe and fun playgrounds for local children. Teaching English to local children and communities is another big project that volunteers get involved in. Working with children and encouraging them to do good in school and learn other languages such as English is a big part of a teaching volunteer abroad program.
Another fun project is volunteering at local Community Farms where volunteers work on small farms and promote efficient land use, growth of fresh produce and preservation of it, waste management, reusing and recycling of used materials, and efficient use of resources. This is all a part of agenda of acting locally and thinking globally and a part of common efforts to promote sustainable development and green agriculture.
You can also participate in a Medical and Healthcare Volunteer Abroad Program in Maldives where you will be working at local clinics. Often times these clinics are very small and have only a limited number of services they offer, not all of them perform surgeries or any other difficult procedures that require lots of skills and equipment. So if you are a pre-med or a medical student, then this would be a perfect opportunity for you to gain some hands on experience in directly working with the patients who have minor cases.
As you can see, a lot of work is needed to be done and The Maldives is welcoming you to take part in these projects and make it a better place.
