The sun beat down from Overhead I broke out whilst sitting in the shade. I did not mind the heat I was glad to be outdoors. It did slow the rate of our progress. It had been bending rebar, all which I had little to no knowledge in, mixing concrete, putting blocks, and grinding function involving digging. I will acknowledge that building homes was not in my job description. As I sat there with my back against a tree I poured a bottle of water over my mind. A grin crossed my face, since I had been pleased, although not because I felt refreshed. I recognized a breeze which required my own ideas and drifted across the scene. My thoughts started to wonder.
For years I had the fantasy of experiencing another culture, learning a new language and living abroad. Was not there something more to existence than monotony and regular? Sometimes I had often wonder if many people were actually waking in the morning motivated by the job they were performing and the way their lives were unfolding. I had a change. I wished to become engaged in something positive that could provide a feeling of purpose to me. Does that even exist, and if so where can I sign up. It is easier said than done. I started to understand that building a home once I traveled to Costa Rica and found myself volunteering with Habitat for Humanity International and took the initiative. I wished to discover. So far as the volunteers had been worried administer orientations my function was to coordinate coming and home logistics, and encourage them.
Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and creating decent, affordable shelter a matter of action and conscience. Habitat simply started a brand new International Volunteer Program IVP to get long-term volunteers and that I had been the very first to experience this app. My official name was that the Volunteer Coordinator for the Caribbean & Latin America. I believed this was a huge opportunity since the business existed and was constructed the aid of volunteers. I found my groove, although starting out I had been somewhat on edge. It was incredible – I really enjoyed workplace work. I participate in the evolution of materials like evaluation forms, interview guides, and a volunteer guide. I worked for the advancement of the IVP program with a task force. I administered a volunteer training regime in El Salvador. Yet the part in my job got to work together with other volunteers, individuals who were but were.
