Why VWB?
 

Our Vision

Our goal is to connect international volunteers with opportunities at the LOWEST COST POSSIBLE that will provide them with the opportunity to give back to underdeveloped areas of the world that need all the help and support that they can get. 

Our Mission

To recruit international volunteers and present them with international volunteer abroad opportunities to make a difference in developing countries in need. We commit to offer program fees that are substantially lower than majority of other companies.


Why VWB ?

Volunteers Without Borders was established in 2012 with the aim of bridging the gap between international volunteers and local NGO organizations that need our help. Volunteers Without Borders is an organization that opens our doors to everyone and anyone who wants to help make a difference to people who are less fortunate than ourselves and volunteer abroad. Thousands of People every year from all over the world give their time and volunteer in some form or another. When it comes to volunteering abroad, more and more people would volunteer but often become discouraged due to the high cost in program fees.

We offer program fees that are SUBSTANTIALLY LOWER than most other companies. The reason we are able to offer these low fees is because we send you directly to the source and do NOT add any extra fees, taxes, and do NOT double or triple the cost of the program fees unlike many other volunteering companies that do so. Our aim is to eliminate the biggest barrier of volunteer abroad work and that is the cost. One of the great things about volunteering internationally is that it forces you to leave the comforts of home and really opens your eyes and makes you grateful for all the things we have in our life. It's our duty to ensure that this experience will change your life and the lives of those you come in contact with. At Volunteers Without Borders, we believe that this experience will move you in ways you never might have imagined. Our goal is to ensure you will be left with precious memories that can be cherished for the rest of your life.



Our Story

As the founder of this organization, I'd like to share with you my personal story of how it came to be. The idea of Volunteers Without Borders was created while I was working on a volunteer abroad program in India with street kids and children from slum areas. I have volunteered for many different organizations since I was young. I never planned to start my own company and had no idea it would become an international volunteer project. The most recent work I was involved in was in India where I spent 6 weeks volunteering at various projects in a city called Faridabad about 30 km south of the capital city of New Delhi. The work was nothing shy of incredible and made for one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had in my life. It opened my eyes in so many ways I never would have imagined. After my work was complete, saying goodbye to the kids I worked with was one the hardest things I've ever had to do along all of my travels. After such a moving experience, helping out became more of an obligation to me than an option. I wanted to start a project where people could continue to give back and help on the projects that I was so involved with along with so many others in underdeveloped countries all over the world. So this is why I've created Volunteers Without Borders because together we can all make a difference!
