Locally run volunteering vacations

In an ideal world, all volunteering vacations would be locally run. But often, due to a lack of resources, international operators carry the baton. These locally run volunteering vacations are all managed at the grass roots in places where projects are well established, communities are involved and infrastructure is strong. As with all volunteering vacations, our suppliers follow strict guidelines, ensuring your contribution counts and that you have a wonderful experience.
