Iko Poran

volunteer abroad

Volunteerism - Local, real, affordable!

Established in 2002 in Rio de Janeiro, as a local volunteer non-profit organization based in a developing country (Brazil), Iko Poran is the real thing! Our volunteer programs are rewarding and safe while 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.

Get involved right from the start!

Our grassroots community organizations develop a close communication with our international volunteers to format their work plans and get them really involved with their projects even before they arrive. Iko Poran 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.

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, and the exchange of experiences, opinions and knowledge will open up new horizons and opportunities for everyone involved. Our volunteer programs are also an excellent way to meet like-minded people and make friends for life.
