From Corporate to Volunteer

In September of 2015 I decided to make a break from my professional career and follow something that I was thinking about for many years. I quit my corporate job and decided to move to Latin America to volunteer and work for NGOs trying to influence the life conditions of others. My goal is to make a best use from the qualifications that I got from my previous business experience and use them this time in order to help people. I started from part time volunteering but this was only a first step in my pursue to work for NGOs in Latin America.

VOLUNTER
My second stop in Latin America was Bogota, Colombia. I folled the same route as in Peru and decided to try volunteering with another organization for another two months. In Bogota I continued teaching English in poor areas and working in Orphanages. I additionally had a chance to work with homeless drug addicts and with senior women +70 years old abandoned by their families on the streets.

VOLUNTEER
I decided to leave my home, my work and my career and go to Latin America for about a year to do some ‘good things’ and get more live experience and skills. My first stop was Peru, Lima where I spent two months working as a volunteer. During my work in Peru I tried to get involved in as many projects as I could. I was teaching English in poor areas, working with special needs children as well as orphanages.
