The THI Travel Bulletin

Dear Volunteer / Travel Writer:

We trust your volunteer work in foreign lands has been important, informative and inspirational to you. Now let it be important, informative and inspirational to the rest of the world! Please consider sharing your experience with the whole world, on The Humanity Initiative’s new Travel Bulletin.

As a global, volunteer-operated, non-profit, THI’s Travel for Positive Change initiative would like to explore how volunteer travelers work best on the front lines of international development. We are therefore soliciting articles for the following sections of our Travel Bulletin:

Volunteer to Volunteer: Selecting an Organization

  • Let us know what led you to select the organization you volunteered for.

Unmet Expectations: How We Overcame

  • What expectations did you have going in as a volunteer? Were they met? If not, how did you overcome them?

Recreational Travel and Global Understanding

  • How has your recreational travel broadened your mind to different cultures and/or increased your sensitivity to global suffering?

Travel Writing and Positive Change

  • As a travel writer, how has your traveling fostered positive change in you, your home country, or in the countries you have visited?

The Bulletin will be freely available to the public in this section of our website, fully run by THI’s Travel for Positive Change volunteers. THI’s Travel for Positive Change (and THI at large) will not derive any income from this bulletin, but rather hopes to bring awareness and and a deeper understanding of positive change through travel.

Please send your articles and ideas directly to: Ivy@humanity.orgWe are looking forward to hearing from you!

Ivy Ddamba and the THI Travel for Positive Change team.
