The Forum: Inspiration through 3rd World Aid Programs (Fall 2021)

After teaching several years in Africa, Germany, and Switzerland, and travelling extensively in Africa and Europe, we settled back in Canada. Our love of traveling was still very present but we wanted to explore the world differently. Volunteer work came as an answer to our quest.
Volunteer Optometric Services for Humanity (VOSH) was our initial adventure.  Construction projects in Guatemala, Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico came next. Teaching Buddhist monks and making artisan paper in India were other fascinating experiences. Unfortunately, COVID has now put a stop to another exciting adventure in Morocco with VOSH.
