Colaboration with volunteersouthamerica.net - a fantastic reference to volunteering!

A website for people looking for genuine grass-roots volunteer work in South America.

VolunteerSouthAmerica.net lists the free and low-cost volunteer opportunities in South & Central America. The site is designed for backpackers /independent travellers looking to volunteer abroad for free, without paying middle-man or agency fees. The origins of volunteersouthamerica.netdate from early 2005 when a founder of the website Steve McElhinney was looking for free, grass-roots, volunteer work in Argentina, and soon he discovered that finding volunteer work that didn't involve paying a middle-man/third party a large amount of cash was much more difficult than he had expected; the result was many happy hours spent searching on Google, internet travel forums & obscure Spanish-language websites for a suitable volunteer work program. In the end, for various reasons, he didn't volunteer in 2005; but he had found a number of interesting volunteer programs which he is still listing for other people looking for genuine grass-roots volunteer work in South America. 

Thank you Steve for including the link to VOFAIR at your website!
