So, I'm like 1/2 through my carpentry course at college, and once i finish i'd very much like to spend a year or so just going round poorer nations and what not doing volunteer construction (Building homes, hospitals and schools etc.).
And I've been looking into it, and the only things i can find, i actually have to pay to volunteer, which. i mean, i understand its charity work. But, considering here carpenters can make £15+ per hour on a decent day. ($23.24), Surely would a charity not be willing to accept one offering to work for free? Rather then me actually having to pay to work.
Id be happy working for free (Obviously they provide food and water and stuff), But, the thought of having to pay my own money (Which i wouldn't be earning) to do it sucks
So yeah, Anyone know any charities that take people on, and they dont have to pay, and they go to forgein countries and help?
