• ACTUALIZACIÓN DE VIAJES: ¡Estamos abiertos! Programa reapertura de actualizaciones y respuestas a sus preguntas sobre COVID-19 y nuestra política de reserva flexible.

Entrar en 2022 se siente surrealista, y hace casi 2 años que el mundo ha estado lidiando con el coronavirus (¡y sus variantes!). En general, millones de personas se han infectado en todo el mundo debido al virus, aunque la tasa de recuperación ha sido impresionante desde hace bastante tiempo. Si bien algunos países han perdido la cuenta de las olas de pánico, nos complace decir que, con suerte, los peores días ya han pasado, gracias a las campañas de vacunación y las vacunas de refuerzo.

Estamos aquí para decirles que después de estar cerrados durante casi todo el 2020, Volunteering Solutions tomó pequeños pasos para reiniciar los proyectos en el primer trimestre de 2021. Estamos extremadamente agradecidos con todas las almas encantadoras que demostraron valor para salir de sus zonas de confort y se unieron a nosotros para ayudar a la sociedad en general.Los voluntarios se han unido a nosotros y han trabajado en países como Perú, Ghana, Costa Rica, Tanzania, Kenia, Sri Lanka, entre otros, y puedes consultar más sobre sus actualizaciones en nuestra página de Instagram .

Actualmente, la mayoría de nuestros programas están abiertos y necesitamos su apoyo ahora más que nunca.

Como ya mencionamos, las vacunas COVID-19 han hecho que viajar sea mucho más seguro de lo que era el año pasado, pero aún hay precauciones que debe tomar, que son las siguientes:

1. Conoce las tasas de contagio de COVID-19 donde vives
2. Sea consciente de las tasas de infección por COVID-19 en su destino
3. Siga los protocolos de seguridad (mantenga una distancia de 6 pies, evite las multitudes, use desinfectante con frecuencia, use mascarilla siempre)
4. Aíslese si tiene algún síntoma

Volunteering Solutions se enfoca incansablemente en el bienestar de los voluntarios y de las comunidades anfitrionas en todo el mundo. Estamos ansiosos por recibirlo, ya que planea viajar y ser voluntario en el extranjero en 2022.Con un montón de oportunidades de voluntariado increíblemente significativas y asequibles, esperamos que tenga un viaje que valga la pena apreciar.

Para todos nosotros, el estrés de esta pandemia significa que anhelamos viajar más que nunca. Si te has vacunado, date permiso para disfrutar de tus viajes y marcar la diferencia.

¡Es hora de comenzar a satisfacer tu pasión por los viajes nuevamente!

Which programs are currently open for volunteers?

Currently, most of the countries across the globe have opened up their borders for international travelers and we have reopened our volunteer programs in those countries where the local government and public health guidelines deem it safe. As per the new travel guidelines, most of the countries will require proof of a recent negative Covid-19 test, taken 72 hrs prior to travel, as well as the vaccination certificate.

We're offering a flexible booking policy for all our volunteers who are keen to join us and make a difference in the post-pandemic world. In order to know more, you can check the CDC (Centres for Disease Control & Prevention) list of countries mentioning the risk factors associated with traveling.

For other locations and programs, we are accepting bookings for 2022 - 2023 and we'll update you soon about further reopenings.

Our Flexible Booking Policy

We’re offering the best we can! Participants can avail the flexible booking policy to change travel dates and program destination during this period of uncertainty. All volunteers can change their travel destination, volunteer project or trip dates free of cost as long as you contact us more than 14 days before your start date. If you don’t know when you will be able to travel, we can hold any program fee you’ve paid as a credit on your 'My Account', until you decide when to travel. Our flexible booking policy means that once you’ve paid your registration fee, your money is protected. Any program fee paid by the participants can be used as a credit towards a future trip. Currently we are only offering a travel credit facility for you to travel at a later date in case of any cancellation due to Covid 19 travel restrictions. We are not offering full cash refunds and only travel credits are being offered towards a future trip.

Covid-19 & Volunteer Travel - FAQs

How can I change my travel dates and still go volunteering abroad in 2022-2023 (or maybe later)?

We know that your wanderlustful soul is keeping you on your toes - and we’re offering greater flexibility for changes to travel dates and destinations during this period of uncertainty when the world is still coping up from the pandemic woes. You can reschedule your volunteering trip abroad anytime in 2022 (or later) and we'll be glad to offer you the dates of your choice.

In case you don’t know when you will be able to travel, we shall be happy to hold your registration and any program fee you’ve paid as a credit on your ‘My Account’ until you decide when & where you'd want to travel to.

Since our programs have already started to resume and you are planning to make your bookings now, make sure to keep the following in mind:

  • Get a comprehensive Travel Insurance Policy and make sure it covers you for the eventualities that you are most concerned about.
  • Book refundable flight tickets or wait until the situation gets better. Since we're flexible with changing your program dates & destination, we'd ask you to wait for some time now, and book your flights only when you're closer to your departure date.
  • Do take care of yourself in the best possible manner, try to avoid going out if it's not extremely necessary, and follow the precautionary measures that have been rolled out by the international health organizations.

As they say, ‘Precaution is better than cure’ and we are strictly enforcing the following, across all our volunteering destinations, in order to minimize the risks associated with Covid-19. It's our first priority to ensure the well-being of the volunteers as well as the host communities.

  1. Volunteers will have to get tested before 72 hours of joining the program.
  2. Volunteers will have to abide by the health and safety guidelines provided during the orientation.
  3. Volunteers will have to maintain proper social distancing while working on the project.
  4. Volunteers will have to cooperate with the in-country staff, for disinfecting and sanitizing the accommodation & project site.
  1. Wear a mask whenever you step out.
  2. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after eating, after you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose.
  3. If you do not have access to soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  5. If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care at the earliest.
  6. Maintain distance from anyone who seems to be sick or is coughing and sneezing.
  7. Make sure you cover your nose and mouth while sneezing using a disposable tissue and dispose of it immediately.
