Why we don't send volunteers abroad

We’re committed to collaborating with communities, supporting them to come up with solutions that work for them and meet their specific needs. We work closely with local partner organisations to provide specialist support and training, but it’s vital that each community is responsible for managing their own projects.

Because the places where we work are often very remote, any visit would require detailed planning and logistical coordination, using valuable staff time and resources. Out of respect for the people we work with, we don’t encourage or facilitate self-funded visits either.
