Volunteer Profiles

We are skilled in supporting many different types of volunteer groups, including gap year students, school children, career breakers, families and older volunteers aged 50+.  All our volunteers are fully supported from the moment that they arrive at our programs.  Detailed information about the support that all volunteers receive can be read here.

Depending on the age of the volunteer we are skilled in tailoring the delivery of our program according to their individual needs. 

For children our orientation is tailored to include more role plays, games and engaging activities. 

For families we provide child minding facilities for children aged less than 5 as well as tailored sleeping arrangements to meet the needs of families at no extra cost.

For those taking a career break or short term volunteering we offer tailor made programs that enable groups to work alongside longer term volunteers in the role of assistants.  This allows people to experience the essence of our work without the responsibilities that being a longer term volunteer brings.

For older volunteers we offer additional support on an individual basis to meet individual needs, past support has included additional mattresses, hot water showers, the option of a single room supplement in a room with en suite facilities, solo accompanied excursions and additional support in the field.

For school groups we offer fully supported short term / long term / education and cultural programs that are tailored to meet the desired outcomes of the group.  Teacher places are free and where required we offer pre departure orientations in home countries to maximize time in the field and ensure
that groups receive maximum preparation prior to departure. All in country activities are fully risk assessed in advance and contingency plans are also completed as standard.  We have links with overseas partners who have the facilities to organize group travel bookings from countries of origin and we can provide fully supported and accompanied excursions for groups according to program requirements.


For corporate groups we offer fully supported short term and long term objectives that are designed to meet tailor group outcomes.  We offer a range of team building activities that are supported and delivered by our ground staff.  Teacher places are free and where required we offer pre departure orientations in home countries to maximize time in the field and ensure that groups receive maximum preparation prior to departure. All in country activities are fully risk assessed in advance and contingency plans are completed as standard.
