Volunteering is even possible without the physical presence of the individual. Thanks to the internet, one can be a Virtual Volunteer, by offering services online, free of charge, and in the benefit of persons in need. For example one can offer professional consulting, share experience, do online supervising, translate, do graphic design, administer web pages etc.
There are many people in the world, who would like to help others, but don’t have enough time to actually go “on the field”. Virtual Volunteering resolves this problem. There are lots of small NGO’s which are in desperate need of such volunteer services, like legal advice, photo/video editing, spiritual help offered by telephone to beneficiaries.
All interested volunteers can sign up for virtual volunteering in the preferences section of their profile page.
