By cooperating with our partners directly in the country, we keep the overheads costs low. And because we are a non-profit local organization we do not charge an extra handling fee.

Get involved right from the start!

Our grassroots community organizations develop a close communication with our volunteers to format their work plans and get them really involved with their projects even before they arrive. Volunteers partake in projects developed and operated by a local partner organization and their respective community councils. Causes range from teaching English, Childcare and Orphanage projects to exciting animal conservation volunteer programs in South Africa. Our highly affordable volunteer abroad programs are very well planned and clear about the benefits to all parts involved. Local people that put their souls into their projects run our volunteer programs. Each project coordinator and team workers sends us reports measuring their quantitative and qualitative results.

The exchange of experiences, opinions and knowledge opens up new horizons and opportunities for everyone involved. The volunteer programs also provide training for volunteers and communities, generate income and employment, and do so in an open ethical manner by sharing the revenues with partner projects. Volunteer abroad programs are also an excellent way to meet likeminded volunteers and make lifelong friends.
