Voluntary work

Depending on your preferences, interests and studies, we will find a suitable and nice place for you. We know from experience that a lot is possible in South America.

In Bolivia and Brazil, we work together with different projects. For example in the field of education, health care, care for disabled people, horticulture, nature and marketing. A few examples?

  • Day-care centres where children with mental and/or physical disabilities are taken care of and being stimulated.
  • Orphanages .
  • Schools.
  • (Psychiatric) hospitals.
  • A shelter where children that have suffered burns are treated.
  • An organisation which supports ‘multi-problem’ families.
  • A foundation that uses theater as a therapy to enhance the social-emotional development of children.
  • There are projects on nature and horticulture where you can work.
  • People experienced in marketing, economics and coordination are highly valued.
  • There are a lot of possibilities for people with a technical background such as experts in software/ICT.
  • Also needed are the people who are beasts in promotion activities and have expertise on social media.
  • Furthermore, there are possibilities for people with experience in hotel management and organization of events.
  • Physical therapists are needed as well.

As you can see, organizations differ greatly. (Orphanages, hospitals, schools, farms, communes…) Target groups are for example (street) kids, babies and (young) women that were (sexually) abused.

Sustainability is always a key point for us. This does not only mean taking care of nature and environment, but also considering the impact of the projects on people. How can we stimulate development and independence on a short and a long term? We believe that helping kids and youngsters to get some perspective will help. Moreover, we intent to provide care and service in a way that has a long lasting effect. In order to secure an actual change in the lives of the kids and their environment we focus on long term goals.

Are you interested? Then feel free to write us and ask for more information. Using mail or Skype. We can search together for something suitable. We are sure we can find something which is fun and can also make a difference.
