Volunteering from Overland Travel Adventures

At Overland Travel Adventures, we believe that if a person is willing to offer their time, then that is more valuable than money.  We would like to offer those willing to give their time to volunteer in a development role the opportunity to do that without exorbitant administration fees.  At the same time however, we realise that the community-based organisations with whom we work are not funded well enough to fully sponsor volunteers.  As a result, we ask the volunteers to be able to cover the cost of their food and lodging.  We can offer a range of lodging options from renting an apartment to staying with a host family.  A typical volunteer experience can last anywhere between one month and one year.
In volunteering with the organisations we support you will be directly helping a community with your special skills.  These are organisations that do not have much access to foreign volunteers so you would be working side by side with local people and be completely immersed in the culture.
