(NOTE: Heavily Cross-Posted...I apologize for those reading this multiple times)
I am looking for CHEAP international volunteer work or learning opportunities!! Please share any info you may have!
The specifics: I need something in Central or South America (preferably Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, but anywhere would be ok), something with a duration of 1 to 2 months, during January and February, something SECULAR, something that is NOT pushing neo-liberal ideology (I'm very cynical about most organizations), an organization WITHOUT a patronizing attitude toward the country in which it is operating and one that understands the political and social implications of its work there. Also, I need something that would not require fluency in Spanish or Portugese...I will have a moderate ability in the Spanish language at that time.
I know it's asking a lot...but, if anyone has had a good experience with a particular organization, I would really, really appreciate some info on it, along with the approximate cost of working with them! For reference, I consider having to pay $1000 in order to volunteer TOO MUCH. My particular areas of interest, if that would help: human rights, women's rights, indigenous rights, environmental justice, social justice, lgbt rights, etc.
Thank you so much!
