We organise gap year and career break volunteer projects plus summer breaks in Mexico, Cambodia, Nepal, Kenya,
Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.
We're a small, friendly, but highly professional organisation that places committed volunteers in meaningful
projects, carefully selected to match your skills and interests. Projects range from two weeks to six months – or even longer.
Volunteering abroad could involve anything from working with children – in schools or orphanages – to working
with animals, such as helping out at an animal rescue centre. Other popular projects include rainforest and marine conservation,
teaching English or art and craft, or medical-related projects, such as physiotherapy. There are also some great sports-related
projects like coaching football. There really is something for everyone.
- Mostly people from the UK, but we also have volunteers from the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and Norway, and welcome
enquiries from other countries.
- Students – either just before, during or just after going to university.
- 16 and 17 year old volunteers – we have some great two week projects.
- Mature volunteers looking to use their current skills or to develop new ones. If you're in a job, we have some great two
week projects; if you're taking a career break or are retired, we have many excellent longer projects.
Generally, you don't need qualifications – just energy, enthusiasm and commitment. There are also great opportunities for
travelling and sightseeing.
