People tell us that we are different than everything else they find on the web.
Humanity has so many challenges but so many
willing to help.
--Custom fit: we don't squish you into a 1-size-fits-all slot; we identify
where your goals can be fulfilled & where your skills are most needed.
Note: ideally your request fits the needs & programs in Africa, Asia, MENA
or Central/ South America (vs what only fits back home.)
If you have a special request, send Questionnaire & resume; let's discuss.
--Wide range of skills needed: Social work, psychology, trauma counselors, education,
early childhood education, nurses, doctors, public health, water and sanitation,
nutrition, small business, micro-finance, entrepreneurship, engineering, solar,
environmental, farming, public administration, political science, democracy building,
human rights, refugees, peace building, yoga, the trades, office, grant writing.
So you see? We need medical volunteers, nursing volunteers, social work volunteers,
teacher volunteers, business volunteers & much more! We put your skills to work!
Each volunteer program uses many skills. So no one-size-fits-all "job descriptions".
--Flexible schedule: Volunteer 2 weeks to 20 years.
Often, you can decide start date & duration unlike one-size-fits-all programs.
--Great for everybody/ all ages: students, professionals, mid-career, retired.
We put your youthful passion or your years & years of work/ life experience to work.
"NGOabroad is a fantastic service for anyone wanting to work internationally, be it paid or volunteer work. I was very impressed by Ann, her honest optimism (no sugarcoating but no dire warnings) and her curiosity about me and my goals as well as her obvious dedication. Ann's insight into and knowledge of the world and non-profit organizations is invaluable. I now have a much clearer idea of what opportunities are out there for me and I have a real understanding of where I can best contribute my skills. I consider the service a bargain." Simone Pfeiffer, Montreal
