Meet Our Global Community of Volunteers and Travelers

I am incredibly grateful to the GivingWay Team, because through their platform I was able to find exactly what I was looking for and I would recommend it to anyone planning or even just considering a volunteering experience abroad. -
Thanks to the review system on the website you get an honest and reliable opinion... which helps to make the right decision. Over all we got the feeling that GivingWay is really concerned about a good experience for volunteers and supporting local projects...This is exactly what we had been looking for and for our next volunteering experience we will definitely go through GivingWay again! -
Within a few hours I found 4 great options through this platform. The GivingWay team kept in touch with me all throughout my volunteering period; and followed up with me after my placement ended. They were receptive, supportive and encouraging before, during and after my volunteering period - Thanks GivinWay Team! -
One of the best volunteer organizations platform, in my opinion is the GivingWay. They work...making sure that the volunteer has every opportunity to make a lasting positive impact, benefiting both the volunteer and, most importantly, the local community... This platform, has set a mark for finding quality volunteering opportunities throughout the world.Givinway is a bright and bold light shining through -

la conservación de la naturaleza lo mejor
Natalia Durante
para quienes amamos la naturaleza la conservación de la fauna y la flora es lo mejor a lo que nos podemos dedicar, el chaco de mi país es algo inexplicable una belleza única me encantaría permanecer ahí de por vida trabajar por la fauna y la flora de mi pais seria algo maravilloso, tuve la oportunidad de ir unas semanas y fue único el levantarse tempranito disfrutar del ruido de los pájaros, la diversidad de la flora, la fauna, los seres humanos humildes y humanitarios es algo digno de destacar, las horas pasan sin darte cuenta entre una cosa y otra ya es mediodía, me encantaria formar parte del equipo de voluntarios porque es algo que lo haría con el alma y el corazón.
Ho, Ghana
Truly Life Changing
TyDazia Talley
Participating in HCDP Ghana has opened me up to cultures outside of my own and shown me what it means to be a productive member of a community. Through this organization, I have had the opportunity to personally witness a change in the lives of the communities HCDP Ghana reaches out to. With sustainability being the number one goal for all projects, HCDP does amazing work to empower disenfranchised groups.
