So, you’ve decided that you want to intern or volunteer overseas. You are ready to experience how ‘the other half’ lives … you are ready to be hot, thirsty, tired, frustrated and enjoy it. You are ready to meet people who will inspire you and others who will annoy you. You are ready to leave behind family and friends and make new connections. You are ready to learn about new cultures, new languages and new ways of doing things.
Volunteering is all about making a greater contribution. Giving back and gaining lots too. By volunteering at a project, you are making a positive difference to the lives of others on a much deeper level; by donating your time, energy and experience. All of our projects aim to help local people achieve a sustainable way of life in an environmentally sensitive manner, as well as assist conservation and communities worldwide.
You don’t need specific qualifications or skills to volunteer either – just a desire to lend a hand, immerse yourself and learn more about what life is like elsewhere in the world.
Why Pay to Volunteer?
Handing over your hard-earned cash in return for life-changing volunteer work might not make much sense to you, so let us make things a little clearer. Keeping you safe in some pretty challenging environments doesn’t come cheap. You need support and guidance wherever you are in the world and our projects ensure you have this.
Each volunteer project requires materials, equipment, personnel, and training and in some cases, includes food costs. Some projects can take years to carefully set up, especially those in very remote and poor communities. A significant donation to the project is included in the price which provides vital income to the local community, so you can be sure that the time and money you invest volunteering is well spent and will make a sustainable difference.
