What we do for ourselves dies with us,
what we do for others is and will remain immortal.
Today, companies are increasingly involved in corporate social responsibility actions. Your company can also take action and share your professional knowledge with communities in other parts of the world. Like all entrepreneurs, we are also committed to the development of our projects and your professional knowledge can help our projects.
With years of experience in development cooperation, we believe that we are an interesting partner for your company when developing a corporate volunteer work abroad. A volunteer project is more than a full-fledged alternative for traditional business trips, team building, incentives and can be combined with on-site excursions.
We believe that volunteering with people linked to your company is an added value for various objectives of your company.
Participate in a group project with Volunteer Abroad Alliance is sustainable travelling with a strong commitment. Get to know the culture and everyday reality of the country, not as a tourist, but as a guest.
The local population benefits most from small-scale tourism.
A group project is a unique combination of vacation, group travel and volunteer work. It may not be a tourist holiday, but we do make time for relaxation. With our local team you can explore historical sites, striking areas or take a rest day. Our local team members know the area like the back of their hand and will take you to places off the beaten track.
De members of our alliance who welcome groups have already collaborated with many other groups. We are active in different areasranging from building schools to healthcare and agriculture. Our group programs are always successful because we adapt the program to the individual needs of the group.
There is a difference in group size, period, duration, but also group wishes and your destination. That is why there will always be a new calculation of costs for every interested group. The invoice and costs are drawn up from arrival at the destination until departure.
We plan and provide programs that allow groups to make positive contributions to community projects, encourage intercultural learning, and expand the personal perspective. By approaching each group individually, we can work with you on a group project that suits youannand fits your budget.
You have the flexibility to leave all year round and this with a group size determined by you. We leave it up to you where, when and for how long you carry out a group project. We don't exclude anyone and want to give every organization the opportunity to get to know a different culture.
You come to places where you (partly) live under primitive conditions and a different climate. Your project work is tailored to your physical capabilities. It is not a very arduous journey, but you have to keep in mind that it is not a typical tourist journey. All we ask is that the participants have a good basic fitness and mental health.
If desired, a group trip can take place more often, the same or a new group can start working for the same community again a year later. Who knows, your company might become a big support for a community that doesn't have the same opportunities, wouldn't that be great?
The emphasis here is on strengthening the team spirit and what could be better than working together on something meaningful. Employees of a company or organization work together on something that the company sponsors.
Companies use incentives for salespeople, agents or customers. The reward and the accompanying recognition stimulate a desired behaviour. Of Volunteer Abroad Alliance we want to offer companies the opportunity tonative by offering volunteer work to their participants. Participants can participate in a project in groups or individually.
Your group collects money for your own project and will carry it out on site. You determine your budget in advance and based on this amount, we look together with the local population where there is a need at that moment, because they know this better than we do. We do not set a minimum on the amount to be collected.
The program of a project trip is therefore much more concrete & flexible than an immersion trip because you provide the funds yourself to carry out your own project.
The project is not necessarily “building”, for example a group of nurses can work in a first aid post.
