Volunteering Abroad

Our volunteering abroad programmes have been running for the last 14 years that have enabled a long term and sustainable infrastructure to be put in place, something that many other programme operators do not do. By volunteering abroad, you are able to completely immerse yourself and learn about a new country and culture, and experiencing a completely different adventure.
