I would like to travel abroad on a volunteering trip. Does anyone know of a reputable travel company through which I could volunteer?
I would like to build houses or work with children or a combination of the both.
Gap Adventures have some great volunteering trips;

Before choosing one, Go to http://www.abroadreviews.com this website shows all the organizations and the feedbacks from 1000's of volunteers. Go with non profits, check if they donate to the local community and if they are building schools, orphanages, and give food donations.
