Looking for affordable volunteer programs abroad? We offer safe, responsible and inexpensive international volunteer programs. Iko Poran is a non-profit volunteer organization that was established in 2002 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a developing country, and offers a wide range of highly affordable volunteer programs abroad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Nepal, South Africa, Costa Rica, Peru, Colombia, Uganda, Ghana, India, Cambodia, Argentina, Ecuador, Kenya, Tanzania and Thailand!   You can be sure we will go the ‘extra mile’ to help you make a long-lasting difference in local organizations during your volunteer programs abroad.   We can keep the overheads costs low because we cooperate directly with our partners in the destinations. And because we are a non-profit local organization, we do not charge an extra handling fee to offer the most affordable volunteer programs abroad!   Our volunteers overseas have a unique experience by actively participating in developing communities for a fairer world. For example, volunteer work in Africa ranges from teaching children in Cape Town to wildlife conservation with the Big Five. Our animal volunteer programs in South Africa count within the most affordable volunteer programs in the field. There is even a Wildlife Veterinary Internship Program. Go for an African Adventure!
