This was an extremely fulfilling and enjoyable experience that allowed me to gain so much insight into Balinese culture and immerse myself in the volunteer experience. There was so much opportunity each day, from meeting new people, exploring Bali, and creating as much of a positive impact as possible in each program. The support provided was amazing and enables so much insight and advice into how to approach your project so that you were never left questions what your nexts steps should be. Additionally the food, accommodations, and transportation was amazing. Overall, this was an incredible experience that allowed me to leave with a great sense of accomplishment and motivation to do more.

Askari WCP

An amazing experience for a whole host of reasons. Well set up, well thought out, and amazing organisation of all activities. The manager is exemplary in her role, sets a perfect culture and reads her audience perfectly in terms of the level of detail they’re seeking. The work is interesting and fun, much is learned about African wildlife and reserve management, and there is huge variety in the experiences. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

I recently completed the IVHQ medical program in Vietnam, and it has had an immense impact on me. This was my second medical program trip with IVHQ, and each one has given me knowledge and experience that I will carry with me throughout my medical studies and career! This is a perfect program for either groups or solo travelers, as you will meet so many other volunteers who share interests and love adventure as well! I can’t wait to start planning my next trip!

I had an amazing time taking part in the turtle conservation project in Sri Lanka. Although in my first week there were times when we had completed the tasks quickly so had some idle time with not a lot to do, during my second week I was the only volunteer, which meant I had much more involvement with the turtles and got to spend more time with them. I also got to release hatchlings into the sea, which was the most incredible experience and one I will never forget. It is a very relaxed project but also meaningful and rewarding - definitely something I would recommend!
My hosts were lovely and took amazing care of me, and although being the only volunteer for my second week meant the social scene was not quite what I had expected, I did feel this allowed me to have more interaction with the locals and by the end of my time there felt very welcome and very much part of the local community, which was particularly comforting as I was there during a lot of political and economic uncertainty.

I chose to volunteer with IVHQ for a week in Merida and chose the child care program. This was my first time with IVHQ. I found the process of signing up very easy and user-friendly. IVHQ was very responsive and even called me to chat. The IVHQ placement options are enormous across the entire world and it is the most affordable volunteer organization I have found. Once registration was complete, the program review was really easy to follow and full of a lot of important details. They even offer flight booking help, travel insurance links, and your travel country of choice's visa requirements. The local contact in Merida was very responsive by text before my arrival. I was given the choice to be picked up at the airport which went as planned. I chose to stay at the Volunteer Inn (instead of a host family), which was clean and my room was comfortable. We were provided one day of orientation that covered a lot of details, including a trip into the town center, with historical sightseeing. My assignment in child care was well organized, although we had to use our imagination to work with the children. I wanted to do a geography lesson and needed a round ball to draw the continents. I did not have a ball handy so I used a coconut I found in the street. I had the children paint it blue and I traced the continents to teach about other countries in relation to Merida and Mexico. I met a nice group of like-minded volunteers, which was a lot of fun.

IVHQ was not only affordable but very straightforward with the program and how they do things. I enjoyed my stay in Portugal and working with kids so much planning to do another program with them. 11/10 the best and most affordable international volunteering program.

Green Life Volunteers

My son and husband participated in Green Life’s biological research station volunteer program during the Christmas holidays. I cannot express our gratitude for the excellent experience they had. They are both naturalists and animal enthusiasts. They had a wonderful time and learned a lot from the experts there. The center was professional, well organized, and the people were very friendly. The administration by Green Life Volunteer’s central office was also outstanding. If you’re looking for a volunteer project involving animals and nature, this is the perfect place.

Experience that changed my life !
This volunteering was for me a way to get involved in environmental conservation and to understand the impact of our life and decisions on biodiversity. In one month, I learned so much about nature and its conservation, it was incredible! Katie & Donald are exceptional guides and people who always make sure you get the most out of your stay and really feel involved in the management of the reserve. I am and will always be grateful in many ways for my time at Askari, and leave this experience with a better sense of myself and a better sense of life !
