It’s our responsibility to make sure volunteers have a great time and
are able to make a positive contribution to our projects; it’s also our
responsibility to make sure that our presence on the ground is in the
best interests of the local communities we work with.

every level of the community working from grassroots to partnerships
with local governments and we strive to maximize the power of
volunteering and nurture a culture of mutual respect and understanding,
and embracing diversity.
