Information On How To Volunteer In Developing Countries

By Dorothy Cook


There are numerous challenges that most developing countries are grappling with. These are found in a wide range of sectors that include, among others, education, healthcare, the environment and the social sector among others. At the same time, there are numerous attractive opportunities coming up in the corporate sector thanks to the tremendous growth that has been seen in these countries. There are a number of things you can do if you plan to volunteer in developing countries.

If you are passionate about volunteering, there are two ways you can use to secure a position. One of them is where you travel to the country of your choice and make applications to government and non-governmental organizations. This may be quite challenging especially if you are traveling to the country for the first time. The other option is to apply to an organization dealing with the placement of volunteers back at home and traveling only after a position has been secured.

The increased rate of globalization being witnessed in many places in the world means that we have to interact with persons from diverse backgrounds. Healthcare provision is among the areas that have been evolving quite rapidly thanks to this increased diversity. Healthcare workers from the developed countries need to have some knowledge about diseases that have traditionally affected patients in the developing countries.

There are numerous opportunities for volunteers in the health care sector. In many places in developing countries, staffing in this sector is major challenge. Rural communities are constantly faced with the challenge of not getting adequate medical attention whenever they need it. The existing shortage of health care providers means that they often have to travel for long distances. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals can make a real difference.

Another important volunteer opportunity in healthcare is in the training of healthcare professionals. If you are a trainer you have an opportunity to help impart skills and knowledge in professionals working in the most remote parts of the world. Emergency trauma care, obstetric care and pediatric management are some of the areas in which regular training goes a long way in reducing mortality and morbidity rate.

The demand for qualified teachers is still quite high in many countries of Asia and Africa. Although the number of school going students is increasing every year, that of instructors is still quite low. Many of the teachers find it a tremendous challenge to teach the large number of students without adequate instructional materials. Volunteer teachers are almost assured of placement due to this constant need. Some of the subjects where help may be needed include science, mathematics and music among others.

In spite of the huge progress that has been made by most developing countries, a sizeable population are still faced with abject poverty. Many cannot afford basic human needs and live mainly in slums. There are many social challenges that come with such informal settlements. These include, among others, increased levels of crime, sexual violence, a high prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases and so on. Volunteer social workers have become quite helpful in such environments.

Volunteering has many benefits regardless of the duration of time involved. The most important among them is the fact that one gets an opportunity to contribute to the less fortunate and contribute to a better world in their own small way. Another benefit is that they will get international exposure in their level of specialization which will help them become even better at what they do.
