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!
My time in Uganda03/06/2015How could this program be improved?
I was asked to jump in to help with lessons which was great, but I might have had a bit more of an impact with a more structured lesson plan for english and reading.
Teaching English in beautiful and colourful Mexico01/16/2015How could this program be improved?
The school was a bit unorganized about my role there, which classes I should visit, what teaching materials were at my disposal, etc.
Fortunately, they listened to my suggestions and were open to some new ideas that made my teaching work easier.
Building Veggie Garden in a School01/14/2015How could this program be improved?
It took us about 45 min to 1 hour commuting to the village where the school is at. May be if we lived somewhere closer to the school, we could've use that time to do actual work on the project.
Also I was the only volunteer working with one local and work was going on slowly. It would be nice to see more volunteers going to finish projects faster.
