Skills Based Volunteering

Overseas Programmes


Social Impact. Global Reach.

Our skills based volunteering is designed to have a
social impact in developing countries.

1. Training

Our unique training approach enables skilled volunteers to deliver essential training to local development sector workers.  

2. Knowledge

Using that new knowledge, workers are able to enhance the lives of the communities who they work with on a daily basis.    

3. Action

Your expertise enhances the wider community and directly impacts the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  

Interested in skills based volunteering? Our overseas programmes are perfect for professionals looking to have a social impact with a global reach.

No matter what profession, sector or industry our volunteers all have at least 10 years work experience.

Your years of experience are invaluable and the organisations want to learn from you.  

Volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds and across all age ranges and we actively encourage older applicants.

Our volunteers love to discover new places and aren't afraid of traveling independently.

You'll be happy catching a local bus or eating at a small food stall alongside workers and families.  

We do help you out with travel details and many organisations like the training delivered by a pair or a couple, so there is room for flexibility.
