Skilled volunteers wanted!

This operator arranges career breaks for skilled volunteers. It is unlikely that we will be able to place volunteers without specific transferrable skills. This project is not suitable for under 21s. We place skilled volunteers to work with not instead of local people. Your skills will be matched to specific needs. Please apply at least 4 months before you wish to volunteer.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Community health care in South Africa

Our core values are respect & dignity; responsibility & sustainability; service & partnership; economic transparency. As with all the projects where we arrange volunteer placements, this projects is designed to be culturally sustainable and economically transparent, as well as being community-driven.

Respect & dignity – there must be mutual respect for the dignity of volunteers and local people, and by living in a comfortable family home within the local community, you will be able to share and discuss aspects of ordinary daily life.

Responsibility & sustainability - you will be working with local people to enhance their own capacity, not replacing any local worker – no volunteer will be placed in isolation – there has to be ongoing and consistent volunteer input.

Service & partnership – we work closely with our local partners in matching the volunteer and their skills to the specific requirements of the project. Our local partners agree with the project as to how volunteer input can advance the project at the particular time of a volunteer’s placement.

Economic transparency – the placement cost is paid by you direct to the local partner team, not to us. We ensure that at least 80% of the cost remains where it is needed most, in the host country, and is used to further enhance this project. How and where your money is spent is clearly shown for each project, and includes a ring-fenced project donation exclusively for this project.
