Humanitarian Trips & Volunteerism / Local action and long-term commitment


A Better World provides opportunities for volunteers to travel in groups, see completed projects and projects in progress, and to be helping hands. Yearly trips are planned to different countries with varied emphasis. People from all walks of life join group trips and assist in any way they can. Some trips are specific in nature, such as medical or educational.

Individual assignments are limited and may be available when our local partners make a request. These assignments are usually long term in nature with specific skill sets. Please contact us to see what is available. Please see below for this year’s trip dates. Visit the past trips archive for a good idea of the activities and costs.

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.


There are often opportunities for local volunteering. Please click below to submit your name to our volunteer list! We will contact you regarding any opportunities.
