Voluntourism is quickly growing in popularity around the world and Sweden is no exception. You may remember a recent blog post where we discussed VolunTourism in Cameroon, these priceless opportunities allow travelers by car hire to give back to the communities and environments they visit while experiencing unique perspectives of their destination. Much like the opportunities in Cameroon, the new volunteer opportunities in Sweden are opening doors for volunteer tourism in the country.
The English Volunteering Project is proposed as a division of Volontärbyrån, the great volunteer recruitment agency in Sweden. The founder of the project, Claire Thomas, is a UK native who has a strong passion for volunteering. By establishing a project targeted to English speaking travelers who don't speak Swedish she hopes to help ease the difficulties they face interacting with a foreign culture, as well as provide an experience where they can integrate into the society more than just a party or resort tourist.
With a cheap car rental in Sweden you can explore hundreds of top attractions around the country, as well as contribute to the English translation needs of the Sweden's ever-growing global communications. While it's still a good idea to brush up on your basic Swedish before your trip, don't let a lack of fluency keep you from your voluntourism plans, and check Sweden's Volunteering website often for more information on English-speaking volunteer opportunities as they are created.
