Volunteer Abroad in Business to Help Lift People out of Poverty

“Having applied to many professional services and organizations previously, I have never come across the processing speed and hands-on approach offered by Ann and NGOabroad. The volunteering service offered is in line with its claim: it applies a non cookie cutter approach in handling applicants. What stands out is the breadth of options and genuine grasp of my goals and what would be suitable for me. I never could have come up with this volunteer opportunity in Business through my own personal research and networking.”

Besides enlightening and inspiring me, you have trained me on how to go about my project.

Words can’t express how grateful I am. Your reward is with God.”

"NGOabroad is unique"

“NGOabroad is the only volunteer organization that could really make good use of my skills and many years of experience in consulting to  non-profits. Wandering around the NGOabroad website provides the first inkling that this is not just another “fill international holes with human pegs” organization.  Your first contact with Ann will confirm your positive hunches. NGOabroad engages you in a one-to-one process intended to first get to know your needs and wants and then to optimally match your skills with certain of her grassroots partner programs. Really now – is there any other way you’d rather try to do this?”

"Ann makes your dreams come true"

“I came to Ann with nothing but an idea, and 30 minutes later, I hung up the phone with a goal and a plan of action.  Ann takes you, wherever you are, with whatever you know and want to do, and finds the best possible way for you to get there.  Put simply, Ann makes your dreams come true.”

“Ann, you’ve given me great assistance & direction in breaking into international nursing. The information that you sent me would have  taken me years to navigate on my own.  I can honestly say that getting the Roadmap is one of the best decisions I’ve made, and worth every penny.”

On Career Coach for Work Abroad in Business

“Ann has been a Godsend to me: a life coach, a career counselor, a mentor.  In trying to make a career change into international development, she understands my family constraints and is helping me work around them.  She offers concrete, clear (and often amusing!) guidance, supportive encouragement, and laser-like insight.  She’s exceedingly responsive and a pleasure to work with.  With her help, I’m sure I’ll be able to get unstuck and pursue my life’s passion.”

Volunteer Abroad for Family

“To be honest with you, most of the Testimonials on this page intimidated me. I thought, “Can’t just a regular person like me volunteer abroad?! Do I have to be a professional to go with NGOabroad?!” Ann assured me that NGOabroad has something for everyone.  When my family took our first (and perhaps last) vacation to Africa, we saw the slave castle on the Ghana coast and my son took drumming lessons. What really capped it off was our time volunteering with youth. It really opened my eyes, and certainly did so for my kids. We started with our Trip of a Lifetime and ended with the richest personal journey any of us has ever taken. I recommend NGOabroad highly!”

On Help with Resume & Cover Letter

 “Ann me ayudó bastante a mejorar el estilo de mi CV y el de mi carta de presentación o interés. Gracias a sus observaciones mi CV se ve mucho mas organizado y fácil de leer. La carta de interés que ella escribió basándose en mi original fue una sorpresa: directa y al punto. Lo que mas me gustó de sus servicios es su disposición inmediata. De seguro, después de que le escribas, ella te contestará o te llamará en poco tiempo, a veces en pocos minutos. Ella también te hace sentir que eres una persona que tiene algo que ofrecer, y eso es gratificante.”

Help on Special Request: Arranging International Internship in Ukraine for Fulbright Scholar

“After 3 months of searching, I wrote to NGOabroad: I am a graduate student studying Peace and Conflict Resolution. I would like to look at the role political apologies play in rebuilding trust. Ukrainian President Yushchenko has built his term around the idea that if you make a mistake – you acknowledge it and move on. I must find an organization that is willing to host me. Can you help?”

“Ann’s skilled research saved me at least a month of frustrated searches and queries. NGOabroad was a definite sanity saver in my search for an internship in the Ukraine.”

On "Roadmap" for Work Abroad

“Ann, this is simply staggering: a massive amount of relevant data on organizations, including both volunteer and paid positions overseas.  I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much for your effort.”
