Community Development

Overview

Our local partners are small and mid-sized non-profits (NGOs).

Volunteers in the Community Development project have the opportunity to work with many different activities. They should be open to work together with locals in community centers providing assistance with day-to-day tasks to help these local organizations carry out programs that increase the quality of life and broaden the development within their communities.
