Volunteer abroad and share life-changing skills.
Our dream is for every person in the developed world to have the opportunity to volunteer abroad safely and ethically, in a developing country. With this vision in mind:
1. We only work with volunteer projects that are ethical and low cost.
2. We believe that money should not prevent people who want to volunteer abroad and who wish to share their education, skills & experience to help others less fortunate.
3. We believe that volunteering abroad brings many positive benefits to the projects and the volunteer. We want everyone to experience it.
4. We understand that many of our volunteers will need some support while they are away.
Our programs provide a point of contact when you need it. We also believe in the principle of reciprocal experiences. You will receive as much benefit from your time as the person receiving. Learning about new cultures, learning new languages and just travel in general are wonderful experiences.
Our projects are designed to make sure you maximise your time abroad.
It's not always the right decision to travel with volunteer companies that send thousands of volunteers to their projects as volunteers sometimes end up not utilising their time due to projects being over resourced.
Our projects employ local people so not only are you sharing your skills, you are also contributing to the local micro economies. This is very important.
The projects are carefully selected to make sure that they are not contributing to local issues. For this reason we tend not to work with orphanages.
There are unfortunately unscrupulous people who realise that they can generate income from Western volunteers who are volunteering with good intentions but unfortunately contribute to projects which are either corrupt or actually remove children from their families.
When you are looking at projects to volunteer with please do your research carefully and make sure that wherever you go is responsibly run.

This is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in a foreign language while volunteering abroad.
Perfect if you have always wanted to learn or practice your language skills.
There are various projects which will allow you to practise your spanish at the same time as volunteering so if one of your goals this year is to improve your language skills or to learn a new language one of our reciprocal projects could be the answer.
