Hello. My name is Matthew A. Hausman.  I am currently travelling around the world, trying to work on different volunteer and service projects.  I am using this website to share stories of my experiences, as well as other thoughts about different aspects of life if anyone is so inclined to read….

Current Update

Been a long time and a lot of travels since my last update.  After finishing in Morocco, I went to China to study Kung Fu at the Shaolin Temple for about 4 weeks.  Then, I went to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year.  After that, I was in Kathmandu, Nepal working with a school in one of the poor outskirts of the city.  Then, it was off to India to celebrate the festival of colors: Holi.

Now, I just arrived in Nairobi, Kenya and will be working for a couple of weeks on an HIV/AIDS outreach program and then I’ll be working on an elephant/wildlife conservation program for two weeks after that.

About Me

A few months ago, I decided to begin travelling around the world and try to work on different service projects.  This website is the collection of my ongoing experiences…
