  • Join our Alumni network. Your students will be able to take advantage of our Alumni network’s promotional and social events. It is always extremely useful to have returning volunteers convey their experience so other volunteers can help out

We can offer the following on request:

  • A familiarization visit for the group leader
    • We will arrange a short itinerary to cover all aspects of your trip, including safety, cultural issues, placement visits and activities
