Job description

Volunteer abroud with one of our incredible grassroot projects in our Community Development  team for free. Locations include Mexico, Kneya, Uganda, Thailand and more.

Who we are

IndiGO Volunteers conncets volunteers to projects around the world, totally fee-free. We have found that many small grassroots organisations do not have the time or network to find volunteers that keep their projects running. Conversely, we have found that people who want to volunteer often find it difficult to identify projects that need their specific skills and meet their values. By matching the right volunteers to the right projects, we help humanitarians focus on their objectives rather than spending precious time navigating the confusing and increasingly commercialised aid sector. We choose to mainly work with smaller grassroots organisations, where humans like you support other humans coping with poverty, displacement and inequality. We support projects all over the world in our Community and Development team. In addition, we have many opportunities for volunteers helping with the refugee crisis in the Balkans and Greece.

We believe it is our duty to help each other and with the right inspiration and tools, more people will volunteer.To achieve this we have developed four key platforms all of which work hand in hand to increase the supply of highly effective volunteers.

Your Role

We offer a variety of opportunities for volunteers at 21 different organisations across 14 countries. Some requre more skills than others.

To show you how inspiring this experience can be, this is Caroline's story from volunteering in Goa, India in 2017.

"My 6 week volunteering experience was so much more amazing than I ever imagined. I fell in love with all of the children and the staff that I spent time with, and I think I actually came away learning more from them, than they could ever learn from me."
