VOLUNTEERNG IN BRAZIL
 

This is a truly inspiring account of the power of international volunteering
It gives a true account of the impact that can be made when one individual decides to 'take the leap' and be of service to vulnerable populations. English language skills continue to be an asset that is highly valuable in many countries, including Brazil. Don Morgan's dedication to providing structured English language instruction really did make a difference in the lives of community members. I'd recommend this book to anyone wondering what one person can really achieve in a world where communities face the complex and challenging issues of poverty.

Never think your value in life is over once you retire
Don Morgan's tours as a volunteer to community organizations in Brazil highlight the deep need of educational assistance in so many areas of the world. But that's only half the story. The other side is the educational value and adventurous experiences a senior citizen can personally gain by becoming a volunteer.

A really inspiring book
Dons book makes you feel anything is possible.  How great to see people doing positive things. It's very readable and you can hear the voice of the real author speaking to you through the words about what he learnt and how energised he was by his experience. Worth a read whether you're thinking of volunteering or not!!

Don's experience just shows what we can do when challenged.
This is a fascinating account of his time spent teaching in Brazil. So worthwhile and perhaps he will have made a difference to some of those young lives. I have so much admiration for all that he achieved. He has also shown that age is no barrier to volunteering.

Volunteering in Salvador is truly inspirational.
You have shared your wonderful experience which is humbling and gives food for thought, for others, that will,  hopefully, do the same, to help these very worthy people.  Not once, but twice, and for no financial gain, with very little help from donations, towards the cost. You gave up your time to learn the language and prepared well in advance for this obviously rewarding challenge. I know personally and by reading the contents in, your book, that you have made such great beneficial changes to so many young students lives. Great photographs and so very interesting to learn about your
experience and the different culture.

An enjoyable and at times very moving account of his volunteer work
A very moving account of Don`s volunteer work in Salvador, Brazil, with lots of local colour and details. The photos are excellent -- professional quality -- and really add to the book. While I'm not personally looking to volunteer in Brazil or anywhere. . . I'm sure this would be a very helpful and encouraging little book for anyone thinking about volunteering overseas -- perhaps particularly someone who's recently retired but still has a lot to give to the world. It could also make a nice gift for a young person embarking on a gap year or similar.
