At the moment...



What kind of work do you do? I'm volunteering at a daycare at a children's home in a Third-World country.



Does this require a degree or specialized training beyond on the job training? Ability to speak and understand Spanish, ability to navigate Bolivian cultures and customs, and competence in hygiene and sanitation. If you're already from here, no, there's no degree or specialized training, but it's far different than the babysitting and other child care Ive done.



Are you paid hourly? I'm not paid. However, I do live here for free, I eat free, and I have free internet access. I paid for my own way down here. I'm responsible for toiletries and anything extra I want to buy or do. Also, health care is on me.



Do you get tips? If so, how does that factor into your pay? N/A



What is the minimum wage where you live and work? I don't even know if Bolivia HAS a minimum wage. As they are getting more socialist by the minute, I would imagine so.



Do you get more or less than that? See a few questions above. I live better than most of my coworkers, and I have a much higher standard of living than most people in this city and this country.



Do you feel you are paid fairly? I am sure this trip will be more than worth the expense.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.
