I am a patient, loving person who's going on 50 years old. I have no more ties to my hometown and not as interested in travel anymore as I am to finding a new home. I am looking for contentment, fulfillment and maybe the meaning of life. I believe this can be found in helping the animals and children of Africa. Absolute happiness - for me - is only in places where I am needed (AIDS children, preferably). Can anybody point me the way. I don't have much money (only enough to get there), but I don't ask for any luxury when I get there - just a sleeping bag and a directory of what plants would be safe to eat. Most WebSites I've come to are only looking for term (2-3 month) volunteers who pay their own way. I want to commit for years.
