My Foreign Land I Called Home

Volunteerism gives me a sense of accomplishment and genuine joy that no material wealth can replace. When I was still in the Philippines, I have joined several NGO in promoting their advocacy in social development. The opportunity came in when I applied in another NGO placing volunteers to abroad. I took it as a challenge and as privilege to serve other people with the skills that I have. I was placed in Kurgan Teppa of Tajikistan found in Central Asia. The country is not that familiar compared to its neighboring countries, but the wonderful memories that I had with the people there and the camaraderie made me feel that I am just in my homeland. If given the opportunity again, I would like to visit the country again and see my friends and the people I have trained. Truly it can be called my home away from home.

@rakski It is really nice to start up working as volunteer. However, we are still young my friend. We can work in an international NGO. That would be my target tentatively next year. I had also worked in an NGO before. We are are really in common passion and interest.
