I'm in a quandary!
I have a milestone birthday coming up! I know age is just number but sometimes you just feel old!
Although I'm desperate to pay off our mortgage and look to my new career I can't help feeling there are lots of other things I want to do as well ...... I'm not the sort of person to just go off travelling, and Mr M isn't particularly keen on overseas travel so what to do?!
One of the things I've always wanted to do is to volunteer in an overseas orphanage. There are lots of companies offering these sort of volunteering experiences and there are a lot of orphanages crying out for volunteers. One of the projects I'm particularly drawn to is in Ecuador and involves basic childcare of children up to the age of 7 whose parents work on the rubbish dump, sorting the rubbish ( they don't sort it like we do) It's basic childcare and then playing with the children.
From the website:
- To love, educate, and give the children hope. We want to see the generational cycle of growing up and working in the rubbish broken.
What do you think?
