VOLUNtourism

Voluntourism a form of tourism in which travellers participate in voluntary work typically for a charity.

We specialize in providing destination management services for educational groups, churches, fraternities, sororities, colleges and universities. We are an organization with our feet on the ground for nearly 20 years, therefore we are able to merge service-based and experiential learning with immersion and sight-seeing unlike any other agency.  We are sharing our experiences and contacts unlike any other agency.

Our services include the arrangement of transportation and accommodations and special events. From cultural to educational and ecological- we are able to provide a holistic experience.

difference between voluntourism and volunteering

  • Short term
    • Voluntourism programs typically are a part of a larger vacation, which may include small excursions or entire days/weeks of leisure. The programs are meant for people who want to do good abroad but do not have the time to commit to a volunteer project and therefore tend to be shorter in duration
  • Group oriented ( requires a minimum of 10 people )
  • Voluntourism normally attracts families and therefore young children are offered the experience as well as they travel with parents/guardian
