Yeah,I know Ethiopia sounds exotic,etc.If you want to go to Africa,why don't you try the Peace Corps or some other ORGANIZED volunteer organization? I talked to the Gibson(GYA) people a couple of years back by email.I was not impressed.It appeared to me that this is merely a private school which is trying to get people to work for nothing.That is the impression I got.And it sounded...well ,very flaky...sharing living quarters with people,etc.etc. They used to post on the International Jobs Offered Forum on Dave's,although I have not noticed any ad there lately.Suggest you exercise caution with this one.Apparently,any person who wants to volunteer for them has to get the visa things,etc.etc. on their own,,,which in most cases would undoubtedly involve time and expense.
