Many holidaying newlyweds are choosing voluntary work on their honeymoon in Africa to make a positive impact on the lives of the less privileged. Couples who see giving back as the perfect way to start their new lives together are opting to skip the rose petals in the bath and roll up their sleeves for good causes.
“Honeyteering” is where just-married couples volunteer for a worthy cause in the developing world, rather than the indulgent two weeks on a beach. Cultural immersion, camaraderie, and educational opportunities are just some of the numerous rewards associated with volunteering.
Times have changed and nowadays many couples have lived together for years before they get married. So a honeymoon is less of the romantic and sexual epiphany it once was. Doing volunteering work with a partner can be a powerful bonding experience and a great way to learn more about each other.
HONEYMOON VOLUNTARY WORK
It has already become commonplace for the bride and groom to ask guests to donate to a charity rather than give presents. The logical extension is for the happy couple to give up their time on honeymoon helping a worthy cause.
Many newlywed couples choose Go Volunteer Africa to help them design a holiday with something special, expecting it to combine fun and relaxation with using their skills to help someone else through honeymoon voluntary work.
Couples participating on a honeymoon voluntary work organized by Go Volunteer Africa will usually mix four or five days of voluntary work with equal amounts of relaxation and sightseeing. Activities range from teaching, working in an children’s centre/orphanage, construction, medical outreach, marine conservation, or helping on a nature project.
