We provide people an opportunity to help those less fortunate than themselves, without disturbing significantly their work and family responsibilities. Volunteering is probably the most rewarding travel experience available and our trips make it available to a wider audience by keeping within 2-3 weeks, the same length as a typical holiday.
Each trip offers between 7-10 days volunteer work, followed by 4-7 days relaxation. The volunteer work is at carefully selected sites - such as refugee camps - for small groups of people.
Volunteer groups are normally comprised of 8 people. Most participants are from Europe, Australasia and America. It is a great opportunity to make new friends and have fun while doing something meaningful and highly rewarding.
