Humanitarian Trips We’ve Taken / Archive

We provide opportunities for volunteers to travel in groups, review projects, and to be helping hands. Annual trips are planned to different countries with varied emphasis. People from all walks of life join our  trips and assist in any way they can.
A Better World uses local labour as much as possible and the teams that travel focus on skill development and/or training. We work side-by-side with the local people ensuring that we do not take away their employment but rather enhance their skills through training and collaboration.
