Our Approach


Local Needs

Local organisations have developed long term, meaningful relationships with the communities that they serve and are best placed to understand the needs of those communities.


Organisational Context

Our training is aimed at building on the knowledge and skills of our partner organisations. We provide training that has an organisational impact, not project specific.  


Rural & Remote

We support organisations typically based in rural communities. This locational disadvantage limits them from accessing the support that the larger urban areas provide. 

Skilled volunteering is essential


Long term impact

By training the professionals in the field. volunteers are ensuring that their time is well spent and meaningful. 


Equal partnerships

Our volunteering model is designed to share knowledge and expertise from one professional to another. 


Building networks

Our volunteers return home and connect their new partner organisation with other professionals. 

Discover your next charity partner!

We work with a huge array of charities across Nepal and Southern India, personally visiting them at least once a year.
We've learnt all about what skills they need so that we can help you to share yours.
