As an act of philanthropy, more and more people from all across the world are getting interested in volunteering for the underprivileged ones, and are traveling across the borders to stretch their helping hands. Volunteering abroad, along with the concept of ‘socially impactful journey’ has evolved much in the 21st Century, and people are extremely keen about focusing on societal development and personal growth while exploring a new destination.
Volunteering Solutions was established in 2006 with the aim of changing the face of volunteer travel, and in the last 12 years, we have had more than 14,000 volunteers who completed their journeys with life-changing experiences. Nicknamed as VolSol, we provide the best volunteer and intern opportunities to interested candidates from different parts of the world, and we ensure that each of them gets the maximum out of the program they choose.
Currently, Volunteering Solutions operates in more than 26 countries, providing more than 150 volunteering and interning options ranging from Child Care, Teaching, Medical and Healthcare, Community Development, Marine Conservation and much more. Most of our volunteers are high school students, couples, corporate groups and individuals on their summer break or gap year.
We are in collaboration with NGOs, schools, hospitals, orphanages, HIV/AIDS clinics, women groups and other social welfare organizations all across the globe. Each of these organizations has been working at the grass-root level for years, and successfully contributed towards the development of the concerned people. VolSol has ensured that the contribution of every volunteer is counted, and there’s sustainable growth.
For the internship programs, participants opting for Medical and Healthcare projects get to work with professionals and learn how to deal in emergency situations. Our internship programs are crafted and designed in a way that every participant gets to know about the medical scenario of a particular country. It is both an inward and outward journey - inward, as you’ll get to learn a lot through the first-hand experience, and outward, as the society will be benefitted by your contribution.
As an organization, we have a cross-cultural set up in all our offices across the world. We have people from different countries, cultures, and ethnicities working for us in order to make the process of volunteer traveling smoother and more flexible.
We have dedicated coordinators at each volunteer destination, coming from different countries. We take care of the volunteer’s placement, traveling, accommodation, meals, and security.
To say it in short - “Volunteering Solutions is the best way to volunteer, intern and travel across the world.”
