World's most affordable volunteer abroad programs

Established in 2002 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as a local volunteer non-profit organization based in a developing country (Brazil), Iko Poran offers a wide range of highly affordable volunteer abroad programs! Our volunteer programs are safe and rewarding making a long lasting difference in local development organizations. By cooperating with our partners directly in the country, we keep the overheads costs low. And because we are a non-profit local organization we do not charge an extra handling fee. Volunteers have a unique experience by actively participating in developing communities for a fairer world.

Get involved right from the start!

Our grassroots community organizations develop a close communication with our volunteers to format their work plans and get them really involved with their projects even before they arrive. Volunteers partake in projects developed and operated by a local partner organization and their respective community councils. Our highly affordable volunteer abroad programs are very well planned and clear about the benefits to all parts involved. Local people that put their souls into their projects run our volunteer programs. Each project coordinator and team workers sends us reports measuring their quantitative and qualitative results.  

Experience – Unexpected, long lasting, and unique!

We assure you that your life will never be the same after an Iko Poran volunteer abroad program. You will experience a different culture from a local perspective working side by side with locals. The exchange of experiences, opinions and knowledge open up new horizons and opportunities for everyone involved. The programs also provide training for volunteers and communities, generate income and employment, and do so in an open ethical manner by sharing the revenues with partner projetcs. Our volunteer abroad programs are also an excellent way to meet like-minded volunteer and make friends for life.
