Love Volunteers

Provider

We are just a handful of passionate people working hard to help volunteers and local communities around the world. We don't have huge overheads - no company cars, no downtown office - we're just volunteers who thought we could do a better job. We work with local organisations wherever we can to keep administration costs to a minimum and also to return as much money and skills to the local communities where we operate. We can offer the lowest possible fees, but also ensure that you are immersed in the local culture and are actually making a difference!

    Much More Than Some Teaching Gig
    07/27/2015

    Many of them share one bathroom. They have one fire which they share to cook with it. And their only pair of shoes is the one the school provided for them. The obstacles so many of these kids face are extremely heartbreaking. With this program I was able to truly make a difference. As an assistant teacher I was able to impact them and help them realize their full potential while at the same time having lots of fun with each and every one of them.

    How could this program be improved?

    The only way I see this program improving is if there were more volunteers willing to contribute their time and energy to this cause for these children more than deserve it.

    Women's Empowerment Project in Morocco with Love Voluntee
    07/23/2015

    I really got a first hand authentic experience of Morocco through working with women in the NGO VFA. I was very impressed of how they worked and how much I had to learn about their work and program. I was assigned to tranlsate a lot of documents pertaining to the women's rights situation in Morocco. I was also able to teach English at the NGO. This allowed me to work in the judicial literacy program the NGO had.
    I also came up with the initiative to organize women's empowerment workshop.
    I stayed with a nice host family which made my stay absolutely indicative of the family dynmics in Morocco. We celebrated a lot of things with my host. I had the great chance to attend the end of Ramadan and party with my host. I was also happy to have chosen to go with Love Volunteers because they offered me a lot of support and their team in Rabat made my stay unforgetable.
    I would highly recommand this program for anyone seeking to immerse themselves into the Moroccan culture and looking for an amazing experience in a beautiful country as Morocco

    It was one of the best decisions in my life to go to Ghana for Volunteering. I will never forget this experience. I've received so much love from all the people there. I feel in the love with the kids there, i think anyone will do! I can totally recommend you going there. This is something you will carry in your heart a lifetime.

    Beside all the medical preparation beforehand I can recommend you to go there with an open mind and heart and it will be the best time in your Life.
    Everyone is so helpful and caring that you will feel like you are visiting family! :)

    Fantastic month in Kenya
    07/13/2015

    I've spend one month in Nairobi, Kenya working as an English language teacher. The whole experience was fantastic and very eye-opening! Marafiki Community staff were very nice and supportive. I could especially mention the team leader Izzo, haven't seen such an enthusiastic and energetic person as he is! My school wasnt far away from my placement so it was easy and safe to travel. Food was great, very simple and nutritious. African people are very friendly and easy going. I fall in love with Africa!

    I didn't want to leave!

    My volunteering experience with the media project was beyond words. The wonderful woman who runs the organisation, Theary, was an absolute treasure. She took a lot of time to explain how the nitty gritty of how NGOs operate, and would take me with her to everything from conferences and meetings to her family friend's wedding. Needless to say that thanks to her I saw so many different sides of the real Cambodia. On top of that, the work was really fulfilling. The days were long, so you felt your time is being used well and you can really see the effects of the effort you put into it.

    How could this program be improved?

    It would be great if air conditioning was included in the price.
