EXIS

Description

EXIS is your ticket to put together a different kind of travel experience. EXIS got started in 1982 with restlessness and an urge to ramble – before globalization was a household word and the world could be Googled in five seconds. EXIS made sure nearly 30 years ago that Danish au pairs could drink tea on the High Street in London – and now offers unique language study and voluntary work on five continents. You can probably still be an au pair, but a lot of travellers think it is just as exciting to tend elephants in Sri Lanka, help out at an orphanage in Costa Rica, work with Masai women in Tanzania, teach English to young Buddhist monks in Thailand or work on conservation in the Grand Canyon, USA. EXIS’ philosophy is still the same – to make it possible for you to satisfy your curiosity and thirst for adventure. We work with partners all over the world to build the most secure starting gate for unique experiences – and you take it from there! Forget all about the world getting smaller. It’s bigger than ever and right within your reach. Join the world... it's yours !

ROSE (RURAL Opportunity FOR SOCIAL ELEVATION)

Description

ROSE began in 1981, fuelled by the determination of a local man, Jeevan Lal Verma, to try to tackle the many problems he saw being experienced in his local community. Starting initially with a school, to provide education to the children of the more deprived families in the area. The organisation soon expanded, developing its Ghandian aims of promoting equality for men and women of differing castes in order to raise the quality of life for all. In 1988 the organisation began to receive volunteers who have provided their skills and services and in return benefited from the cultural experience of immersion in rural Indian life. Volunteers are treated as family members and help in the fields and with various household tasks as well as teaching English every morning to the children who now come to school at Mr Verma's house. Past projects have included repairs to homes damaged in the earthquake of 1999, the construction of an earthquake proof house, the repairing/replacing of a water pipeline for the local hospital, expanding and developing the tree nursery ( to counter deforestation), and the construction of an outhouse for cattle. Project work is continually being devised and is implemented when funds allow. Volunteer involvement in planning and managing are welcome from those unskilled learners and those who have skills in relevant areas. Currently ROSE is seeking to complete repairs to local homes, build a new Cob Earth building, repair/replace water pipelines, expand and develop the tree nursery. Practical soap stone manual mining experience. Volunteers who come to ROSE are able to help the local community and experience the local culture. By participating in various projects initiated by ROSE, volunteers can meet and interact with members of the community, encouraging cultural exchange and increasing global understanding. As a non-governmental organisation, the key problem for us has always been funding. Volunteer work can involve fundraising whilst staying in India, and some volunteers continue to fundraise on their return home. web address =

AMAIDI International

Description

Since 2006 AMAIDI enables social organizations worldwide to get access to professional and general volunteer resources to be able to meet their global challenges.

Therefore we inspire and mobilize individuals, companies and universities to engage themselves locally or online, either with their skills (pro bono) or their work force (hands-on).

Amaidi International links overseas and local volunteers with local communities they want to support via building capacity of the local organizations that serve these communities such as non-governmental organizations, schools, hospitals, care-homes and social enterprises.

Amaidi International also partners with responsible travel organizations in the countries we work in, so that tourists are offered a different way of getting in touch with the soul of a country. This also allows opportunities to the local communities visited, such as earning respect for their culture and income towards their livelihood.

Amaidi International acknowledges that money, spent in the right way according to the real needs of a local community, can be a boon for the urban and rural poor, enabling them to place the first steps on the road to a better life, away from poverty and its ugly faces such as chronical illness, un-employment, lack of access to quality education and political empowerment.
