Submitted by: PR Marketer
Wilmington, DE (OPENPRESS) May 18, 2012 - The world needs volunteers. A person's effort may be small, but with everyone doing their bit, the world benefits from global community service. While enriching the lives of others, volunteers find themselves discovering, acknowledging and developing new skills and experiences while accumulating knowledge for their own fulfillment and self-improvement.
uVolunteer.org is a volunteer service organization that offers volunteer overseas vacations, and welcomes interested individuals, families, groups and institutions to experience the joy and satisfaction of visiting and volunteering in one of the best destinations in either Latin America, Africa or Asia. Founded in 2006 by Nathaniel Manu, formally with the BBC London, the organization is all about helping people to enjoy the adventure and fulfillment of volunteering abroad without having to pay a fortune.
"We offer comprehensive volunteer abroad programs at unparalleled and affordable prices without compromising on the quality of service. The work that we do as volunteers, however big or small, is part of a large effort of ethical travelling that gives something back to the counties that we visit," Mr. Manu says when asked about the aims of uVolunteer.org.
uVolunteer.org offers volunteer vacations in the Costa Rica, Ghana, and Thailand. Projects focus on Wildlife and Environmental conservation, Teaching English and other subjects, Sports Coaching, Media & Technology, Orphanages and Community Development. Projects are run in collaboration with government and non-government organizations, grass roots organizations, as well as private partners.
uVolunteer strives to make the dream of volunteering accessible to all, as such not only does it aim to give value for money, but also uses its local expertise and presence to customize programs where possible so if those interested cannot find the particular type of project on their website, you are invited to contact them at email@example.com to discuss other project possibilities.
Volunteers with uVolunteer.org will benefit from programs with 4 day weeks allowing for long weekend travel. uVolunteer promotes the need for cultural exchange and getting to know more about the country you are visiting and so are on hand to provide any travel assistance needed.

Participants aged 17 are accepted with parental consent, while 10- to 16-year-old volunteers should be accompanied by a legal guardian or as part of a family or an organized group.
