Hi! We are Maria and Patrick and we set up this project to offer a volunteering opportunity to independent travellers. Many who decide to take the time travel in other countries would like to spend some time volunteering. However, this is often made difficult due to the amount of money that organisations ask from their volunteers... many don't have the budget to pay hundreds of dollars (or in many cases over a thousand) a week for the experience. We do not want to discredit these organisations in any way, the fact is that they have expenses and employees to pay. However, this does mean that the majority of independent travellers who want to volunteer along the way cannot afford to do so. This project was set up with the idea that people who want to give their time volunteering shouldn't necessarily have to pay more than the cost of their accommodation and food.
