Thus creating sustainable projects across world, where no organization and groups worked or exist today. All our programs are around the year, flexible start and end date, affordable prices, and few weeks to months and years. With our global reach, we offer the widest range of volunteer projects and locations, and our own dedicated staff are on hand 24/7 to make sure our volunteers make the most of their experience and leave a lasting, positive impact.

We also believe in supporting long-term economic and skills development in the countries where we work, which is why we have established several support offices in developing countries, including an IT office in Romania, a design office in Mexico, a finance office in Mongolia and a volunteer support and recruitment team in South Africa.

100% Nonprofit

We are not a funded organization, nor have our own funds and local resources to take care daily operation and sustain our projects. We therefore solely rely 100% on and international volunteers, internship students and funding partners only.
