Oyster Worldwide is passionate about the importance of responsible travel. We want our projects to fit in with the local way of life, without having a negative impact on the environment, culture or economy. This means that we will only send participants to places where there is a real need and where we have been asked to work. Once there, they should fit in with the community, respecting their way of life and supporting, rather than taking, local jobs.

Yes, I recommend this program

Would 110% recommend!!

Had an amazing time! Absolutely loved every minute of my two weeks and wish I was there for longer! Everyone you meet is lovely and all of the other volunteers are fantastic, have made lots of new friends all over the world now.
Was an incredibly rewarding placement and I’d go back in an instant!

This trip is gives a great opportunity for aspiring medics and you can get as practically involved as you like (eg I was taught to take blood samples and bliss pressure, put on bandages and assist with physiotherapy). Your trip is definitely tailored to you and what you feel comfortable with in order to maximise how much fun you have and how much you learn. Whether you want to learn the science of the medicine being practiced or feel brave enough to have a go, everyone is supportive and I could not recommend this trip more to anyone with an interest in healthcare!!!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Get the size S T-shirt because M is much bigger than expected!!!
And enjoy!!
