Making A Difference
American Volunteers AbroadUnknown - 2000
This film highlights Americans engaged in a wide variety of volunteer efforts outside the United States - teaching English in rural Kenya, providing health care to poverty stricken mothers and children in Ecuador, working with street children in Tanzania, teaching bio-intensive agriculture in East Africa, building houses in Uganda, teaching English in southern Italy and many others. What motivates these volunteers to get involved? What do they get from their experiences? What is their cultural impact? What problems do they encounter and how are these overcome? The program looks at projects virtually any adult American can become involved in whether they have only their two week vacations or can devote a year to a volunteer effort. It follows volunteers representing a broad range of occupations who participate in efforts by four of the leading international volunteer organizations based in the United States.
