Adult & Family Trips

Take a volunteer holiday abroad, see someone else’s world and change yours

Adult & Family Trips

Treasure the exhilaration of helping others

Volunteering has no limit – not age, not location and not length of service. Sign up by yourself or with friends or family and be part of a team travelling to a country where the need is great and where your actions count.

What you’ll experience


Connect with local people in a new country as well as bonding with your fellow volunteers. Take time for reflection and reconnect with yourself.


Immerse yourself in a new culture, where everything is different: language, sights, smells, sounds, food, people and even animals. Learn about others and yourself through unique travel adventures.


Work hard on a project that will have long-lasting impact for a family or a community. Rest your muscles while playing with curious children who always seem to come around to ‘supervise.’


Feel the deep inspiration that comes from creating positive change through volunteering. Develop a more profound sense of empathy and understanding from doing volunteer work that has meaning.

“Today we had the honour of having the chief visit the site. He came to welcome our team and thank us for coming to help improve the community. He especially expressed gratitude for DWC coming in to help their community on their terms, in their ways and for not coming to try and change them.

“It is reassuring to know that we are employing many residents of the George Brook community. The husband and wife team breaking rocks for the cement are a great example of this; not only are we helping to improving their income, but also we are saving money for the project by not having the rock hauled in.”
