We are thrilled to be working with EXPLORE! – one of the most trusted and responsible tour operators in the UK – we could not have wishedfor better partners to work with us on an exciting new initiative.
We started people and places to campaign for change in the volunteer – voluntourism market – call it what you will – ( I cannot come to terms with “voluntourism “and I like EXPLORE!’s term more – “experential “trips.). One area that we have been keen to address is short term volunteer placements – but its’s tough to get it right
Well working with our local partners in Nepal, India and South Africa we think we may just have cracked it – and particularly with the support of such a great partner in EXPLORE!
So take a look at the trips under the EXPLORE or group sections on the projects page. Let us know what you think. We believe that we can now offer meaningful and sustainable short term placements – thats because they are part of an on going inititive – grass roots projects supported by our local partners and longer term volunteers. These trips will not be one offs – they are part of a planned and meaningful picture – I was tempted to use the word strategy but I think that may be pushing it – given some on the projects we work with!
