Developing World Connections

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: October 22, 2013, 11:47 PM

Description

Developing World Connections provides International Volunteer Experiences to people of all ages and backgrounds. We connect volunteers to communities in developing nations to work on sustainable projects that better the lives of some of the world's most impoverished people.

We are a grassroots, registered non-profit, and Canadian Charitable Organization with no professional, political, or religious affiliation.

OUR BELIEF

We believe that working alongside local people in the developing world on a poverty alleviating project builds hope. Hope for the community, hope for the volunteer, and hope for a better, more peaceful world.

OUR MISSION

It is our mission to be a conduit for hope and to make a positive difference in the world. We exist to connect regular, everyday people with communities in the developing world to work alongside each other while making a real and lasting impact for the benefit of our entire global community.

OUR VISION

Our vision is a sustainable, socially-just, peaceful, and poverty-free global community where people experience the difference they make and the hope they build, all while working alongside each other.
