"I often wonder what would have happened to me if I hadn't made that decision. I suppose I would have sunk. I suppose I would have found some kind of hole and tried to hide or pass. After all, we make ourselves according to the ideas we have of our possibilities. I would have hidden in my hole and been crippled by my sentimentality, doing what I was doing, and doing it well, but always looking for the wailing wall. And I would never have seen the world as the rich place that it is. You wouldn't have seen me here in Africa, doing what I do."

Has anyone here volunteered in southern or eastern Africa through VSO? If so, I'd love it if you could tell me what you think (or thought) of your experience with VSO. Please leave me a comment and I'll send you my email address.

Thanks!

If you want to find out about what volunteering with VSO is like the best place to go is to VSO's new online community - 'Your VSO'. There are volunteers and returned volunteers on there who would be able to answer your questions and give you an idea of what volunteering with VSO is like.
