    • I love what they do! I would love to do a volunteer project with one of their organizations! If you end up doing one let me know as if love to get feedback.

  1. Glad to see this. I’ve volunteered 3 times in 3 different countries and they each remain some of the most amazing times I have ever had. When looking online in the past I’ve found some of the fees being quoted by organisations astonishing and off- putting. I suspected the money wasn’t going to the charity on the ground either. Certainly I’ve been lucky to have transferable skills that have allowed me to self-organise my placements without the need for the middle man. Hopefully this company will open the world to those who previously couldn’t afford to pay those fees.

    • Thanks so much! I LOVE this service. I wanted to put something together myself after seeing how hard it was to find volunteer experiences abroad. This service if fantastic and yes it will make it much more affordable and accessible for people to volunteer. I would love to do one of their trips someday!

  2. I LOVE this! I’m so excited about this website–it’s the dream to have all of these opportunities to explore at your fingertips! And I read this article just when I needed a boost. I’m locked into grad school now but already have an itch to travel and this is just so perfect! Thank you for writing this post and doing this interview!

    • yes isn’t it wonderful Alison! I want to do a volunteer trip off the list. So many incredible options. If you and Don do one, please let me know what you think! 🙂

  3. Thank you Nicole for sharing this. After reading so much about the harm that travel volunteerism is doing in the world I had become disheartened. Wonderful there is a spot to go where you know good is actually being done!

  4. While our overseas volunteer experiences have been excellent and influential on our lives, we began to feel that the organizations helping us to get there were taking advantage of both us and the groups they connected us with. We have found some smaller, faith-based companies that have kept the right focus but since we are not strongly connected to a particular faith, that grew awkward, too. Glad to see this development; I will check them out!

    • Yes Lexi I am so excited about GivingWay! I am certainly going to look into one of many of their opportunities down the road and it is so great they are there as this service is so needed!!!

  6. I’ve volunteered for Inti Wara Yassi in Bolivia, and I’m pretty sure the ocelot in your photo is the one I worked with! It’s an experience I would definitely recommend, thanks for posting about these opportunities.

    • Wonderful! It must have been a great experience! I would love to do one of these volunteer trips especially once outside in nature. Thanks so much or stopping by and commenting.
