Volunteer travel - what's it all about

Are you looking for an adventurous trip with a purpose, or on a gap year or career break? If you want to make a difference in some of the world’s most important conservation areas - and in community projects - then volunteer trips are for you! Volunteers tend to have a sense of adventure, and come from a range of different backgrounds and from all over the world.
Edward Abbey said 'sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul'.

Responsible tourism: Orangutan volunteer programme in Borneo

Environment

This operator organises and runs the volunteer programme. We ensure the programme runs in an environmentally and socially responsible way. Volunteers are there to support the work of the Foundation, whose main aim is to protect the orangutan and its habitat.

Community

We employ local people to work on our project with the volunteers. We also try to use the services of the nearby town as much as possible. This encourages and creates alternative employment from illegal logging or mining. The entire fee for the programme is invested in the programme and pays for the food, materials and local staff wages.
