As a thirdeyemom, I am passionate about giving back and do so through international volunteerism. Here are links to a few of the volunteer experiences abroad I’ve had over the last few years.

Volunteering in La Ceiba, Honduras – January 2013

I spent a week in La Ceiba, Honduras staying with a wonderful Honduran host family, studying Spanish and volunteering with children at a day care center for single mothers. It was a fascinating experience.

    • Thanks Anita! Wow, it was hot in Geneva! You must be having a heat wave….! I’m looking forward to really re-working my blog and also doing more volunteerism as the years go by! I’ve made it a lifelong commitment and I look so forward to my next one, whenever that will be. :)
