About Volunteering Abroad

Volunteering Journeys is a social enterprise that provides meaningful, responsible, and experiential travel experiences through volunteering abroad in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Peru, South Africa, and Costa Rica. At Volunteering Journeys, we constantly strive to build strong bonds with the communities we serve. We are environment conscious and embrace an ideology of sustainability at every level of our volunteer program execution such as Wildlife Volunteering & Wildlife conservation internships in Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Peru, South Africa, and Costa Rica. We promote responsible travel by connecting enthusiastic volunteers with welcoming locals who will lovingly host you and give you a deep and wide understanding of local social or environmental needs that you can contribute to. We are being ethical by recognizing climate change and taking the effort to measure, reduce and offset your carbon footprint (by funding carbon neutral projects) whenever you volunteer abroad with us.

We value individuals of all ages and nationalities without reservation. We believe in creating a fun, challenging, and memorable environment for volunteers and local organizations in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Peru, South Africa, and Costa Rica to collaborate. We have the utmost respect for our local ambassadors and avoid showing them in poor light through photographs or video logs that depict poverty or suffering. Instead, we celebrate small victories that are achieved through teamwork and compassion.
