We want to co-create

a better future

with you!


We understand how valuable our volunteers efforts and capabilities can be, so we work hard to keep costs affordable and economical, enabling more people to volunteer. We are a social entrepreneurship starting with a reputation as Guatemala's most affordable volunteer abroad organization. We have recently expanded into 6 countries across the globe and have hundreds of volunteers traveling with us every year. By working directly with local organizations we are able to ensure that all your support goes towards meaningful community projects and local employment.



Our experienced staff have volunteered, lived and worked abroad for many years. We work hand in hand with organizational programs and we are part of the project that our volunteers are contributing to. In some cases, we have found some of these projects with people that share our values, goals, and dreams. We have helped more than 10,000 volunteers to prepare for their journeys. Our in-depth knowledge and experience mean that we can provide outstanding service, support, and advice to all volunteers, global international programs and non-profits.
