Three Fun Volunteer Opportunties in Egypt

Egypt is famous for being home to what remains of the impressive buildings built by the ancient Egyptians and the largest river in the world.

There is plenty to do there for travelers.  Its cities and culture are the result of years of evolution from two religions: Christianity and Islam. But in some cases you can see traces of the ancient religion from the time of pharaohs.
