About Program

Our two main projects in Colombia are the 'Discover Colombia' and 'Best Christmas Ever' projects.

In Discover Colombia, volunteers will have the opportunity to work with a school or organisation in a team of other volunteers and facilitate workshops related to tolerance, multiculturalism, teamwork, leadership and emotional intelligence. You will also encourage children to play sports and engage in physical activities, to promote healthy development.

In Best Christmas Ever, volunteers will work with orphaned children to ensure the kids get to experience a wonderful Christmas holiday period. Through engaging them in various creative, fun and educational activities, you will have the opportunity to change the children's outlook on life and impact their life directly.

Yes, I recommend this program


When in doubt, ask questions. Do not assume that things will get solved, you have to be proactive and speak up! If you feel that your questions are not being attended to then escalate the issue. Do not worry about beating the bush - nothing will get done if you do.

What would you improve about this program?
The program was overall a little disorganised. People did not know what was required, when they had to be where or how to fulfil expectations. (For example, the first day that I was supposed to be teaching at the school I arrived there at 7AM and the school was closed for that day)
