The health and safety of volunteers is our priority. From selecting our projects and partner organizations and the pre-departure support we provide, to the day-to-day care of our participants in the field. Dedicated and trained staffs work side-by-side with you, to provide the necessary assistance and ensure your safety. In addition, we provide a mobile phone to a volunteer, which enables him/her contact the assigned program supervisor in case of any emergency.
We take health and safety more seriously. We run comprehensive risk assessments for each of our activities, in each of our locations, and are prepared for any eventuality, no matter how unlikely.
Our trained staff members live alongside the local communities in our locations year-round, and only work with leading organizations in their field. This means that we know the areas intimately, and have dedicated, experienced professionals available to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Together, everyone works towards the success of the projects as well as the enjoyment and fulfilment of all volunteers.
We keep in regular contact with relevant embassies and foreign offices, ensuring that we’re able to give you the most up-to-date information and travel advice regarding our locations. Field staff send regular information bulletins to Head office, so we’re always in the know with what’s happening on the ground.
