Cambodia community volunteering

Surf and sports coaching in South Africa

The Western Cape, where this surf and sports volunteer program is based, is a very culturally diverse area of South Africa. There is a large integration of the underprivileged with the wealthy. The main cultures that you will be working with are Xhosa or Afrikaans South Africans. Most of these children can speak English, yet their home language may be Afrikaans or Xhosa. The homes they live in are often built from scrap metal and second-hand wood, usually they do not have running water in their homes. Forty percent of the families in these areas lack a male head of household and the children often have no one to monitor their educational progress or after-school activities. The children we ...Read more >

Sri Lanka community volunteering

As with many places, Sri Lanka’s primary and secondary school system is broken down into public and private. Public schools are funded by the government to offer children from poorer backgrounds free education. Private schools tend to attract students from more privileged backgrounds as well as better equipment and better standards of teaching professional. This is where our English-speaking volunteers come in. We work with a couple of public schools in the greater Galle area: a nursery/kindergarten and a secondary school. In addition to daily classes we also conduct evening classes at our own teaching centre in the rural community of Katugoda. For the kindergarten schedule we ask ...Read more >

Women’s empowerment volunteering in India

Women around the world face tremendous hardships, especially in developing countries due to many social and economic factors. Gender inequality and lack of access to a quality education is a huge impediment in their upliftment and growth. The divide is evident right from classrooms, workplaces, and homes which clearly shows that women have fewer opportunities to shape their lives and gain personal and financial independence. Our Womens Empowerment in India is a truly rewarding program based in Kerala, South India. Women here continue to be seen as “dependent wives” or “supplementary earners” at best. Traditional familial responsibilities of a woman, especially as a mother/wife/homemaker, ...Read more >

Sri Lanka dog shelter volunteering

The life of a stray dog is far from easy in Sri Lanka. The vast majority of the public’s awareness of dogs (and animals in general) is still very limited. There are hundreds of thousands of stray dogs in the country who suffer from hunger and untreated diseases, some of which are shot, beaten to death or gassed. Most dogs live on the streets, and many are in an appalling state. Unsprayed females produce several litters of puppies every year, many of which are simply abandoned in front of temples or at the gate of the Dog Care Clinic. These puppies are usually too small to have even the slightest chance of survival unless provided with care. Most of them die of hunger or due to parasites ...Read more >

Family volunteering in Sri Lanka

Our Sri Lanka family volunteering program is about escaping the norm and designed so you can experience this incredible country as participants rather than simply guests or tourists. For most families, volunteering while on holiday gives you an opportunity to ‘give something back’ or to put one’s skills to good use in an environment or community where they are needed. They are also about introducing children to a completely different world, giving them a chance to learn about wildlife and the environment, and some encouragement to break the moulds of consumer and indeed digitally driven life. When you volunteer in Sri Lanka, you will be in awe of Sri Lanka’s friendly people, its rich ...Read more >

Family volunteering in Peru

Family volunteering in Peru really is an adventure for a lifetime for those who seek a real cultural exchange for them and their children. While adults work as teaching assistants (or teachers if they are fully qualified) in a local primary school, your children get to take part in classes, sports sessions and meet new friends from Cusco. So, although volunteering placements are associated with gap year students or empty nesters, we have found that families give and gain so much during these placements also. Cusco, where you will be based, is famously the capital of the Inca Empire, and so while you aren’t participating in volunteer activities, you will have access to the ruins at Machu ...Read more >
