Where would you like to volunteer this year?
If you choose South America, you will be based in a picturesque Ecuadorian jungle village and commute daily via canoe to an indigenous community to undertake vital volunteer work. This includes helping to construct much needed facilities for the village school, teaching English and installing ablution facilities to give the villagers access to better health and hygiene! Your second week with us will see you trekking through the wild jungle of the Amazon Basin. Here you will see all manners of jungle life, stay in tribal accommodation & lodges, visit a shaman and top the trip off with an intense day of white water rafting!
If your choice is The Fijian Islands, you will be working alongside, a local non profit organization. Here, you will be staying with a local family in their village, working in the community helping to educate the children by teaching them English, as well as basic hygiene, building washroom facilities at the school as well as helping to construct water tanks and pipelines. Your second week of your trip will see you sailing up the picturesque remote Yasawa Islands. Every day will see you partake in a different activity, whether it be relaxing in your own private hammock, snorkeling/scuba with sea turtles, kayaking to a deserted island, or chilling on the beach with new mates, it’s a trip like no other!
Or if your choose Africa as your destination you will be working in the world heritage site of St. Lucia. This year we will be working alongside the local Zulu tribe; working in orphanages, teaching English, building houses for impoverished families and working alongside cheetahs and crocodiles in our conservation projects. To top off your time in Africa, you will travelling by open air bus, visiting 3 game parks, sighting Elephants, Rhinos, Giraffe, Hyena, Zebras, Leopards, Hippos and Lions!
