Increasingly, travelers are becoming more concerned with the state of the countries they visit. It’s hard to visit a country and look around and see the people struggling. Many want to do their part and help the locals so they can live a better life. Africa, in particular, is a continent with lots of people in need. The country suffers from a plethora of problems and it’s difficult for the governments to help the citizens. These volunteer projects involve direct help with a community in need.
Choosing a project to volunteer for is difficult. People who volunteer try to impact as many people as possible in a short amount of time. Get involved with the right projects to do the most good.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
