ImpacTrip is a travel promoter that fights social inequality through volunteer tourism in Portugal. We have partnered with Just a Change to give you a life-time opportunity to volunteer and discover our country.

Just a Change is a non-profit organization that has the main goal of fighting the poverty housing. Mobilizing all the necessary resources to a construction work, Just a Change tries to give back the housing dignity to the needed families. With a large focus in the construction of relationships with the families that supports, Just a Change intends to create “Just a Change” in their lives, with the hope that these changes become a turning point into a hopeful and joyful live.

Vision: A world in which everyone had a decent home.
Main objectives: Remodeling 130 homes and 60 social organizations in the next 5 years

I had the opportunity to enroll two of these camps and I recommend it to anyone who wants to create a huge impact in people's lives. Home is the most important place in the world, and being able to improve it for people in need is a beautiful and fulfilling thing. The group interaction is very strong and the environment is really really fun. The work is intense but it is totally worth it ! I met amazing friends and visited beautiful places. I will definitely repeat this experience !

Unlike most volunteer projects, Just a Change has an immediate impact on people's lives. Throughout the week you'll see the team work making the dream work.
The Summer Rural Bootcamp is both productive and enjoyable. Who would know rehabilitation programs in rural areas could be this fun!
You will realize you were born with two hands: one for helping other people, and the other for holding a beer.
It is an epic week, to say the least..

What an amazing experience, to participate in one of the Just a Change's bootcamp.
I would definitely recommend it, the impact you can create in someone's life by rebuilding a house is unbelievable. You will also have time to enjoy the experience with the other volunteers, that become such good friends at the end of this intense bootcamp.
If you're planning on having the best summer, just start by applying for one of the amazing bootcamps of Just a Change. You won't regret it!

I enjoyed the friendly and helpful staff, and had a great time working and meeting with local Portugese at my construction renovation project. I think a particular positive aspect of Impactrip is the location of the apartment: far away from the downtown area to be quiet and comfortable, yet close enough to any public transport to efficiently travel, not to mention Estrella's own sights to see in parks, churches, and neighborhood cafes like Tentadora where I would always get my pastries and cafe every morning. I look forward to more travel to other countries, as well as especially coming back to Lisboa.
