Fiji or Nepal?

Habitat Tsunami Relief Site

A friend of mine with whom I last traveled ages ago, to South Africa (where the two of us saw our first…and hopefully last…murdered body), posted today on facebook: “Fiji or Nepal?”

She is planning on doing the Habitat for Humanity International Volunteer Program and was trying to decide which destination to choose for her work commitment. I love this long-term volunteer program, and also love Habitat’s Global Village Program where volunteer workers go to foreign countries to build homes or do disaster relief work for two-week stints. There is a Habitat program for you no matter your appetite for intrepid adventure or sticking close to home (US programs flourish and provide amazing volunteer opportunities) and however much time you have to give.

My reply to my friend’s facebook query? “Both. Now the question is simply Which One First?”
