These trips give you the chance to travel, live independently in a foreign country and connect with amazing people. Many volunteers we host report that their experience with us has been a defining one, giving them a direction in life and the motivation to do many things they may never have considered. They include some volunteering and fundraising and travelling to see the places where we work.
Come on a trip to one of the places where we have been working for many years and understand how we work in different environments and tackle the causes of poverty. Meet the local staff and the beneficiaries themselves and help us achieve our aim of giving disadvantaged people some self-esteem and encouragement through equality and empowerment. Many people say to us "what can we do to help?" and forget that the simple act of reaching out and spending time together is enough. Especially for the students we are supporting in university and on the cusp of adulthood, your advice and friendship could be the one thing that gives them the extra boost they need to succeed.
