When we think about volunteering, two big waves come to our mind. The first wave are all those people who worked as selfless missionaries and humanitarian workers in all kinds of countries and organisations. They are still around but they got flooded by the second wave, the voluntourism. Companies that sell a working experience abroad for a high price and they often can’t provide a very good service (especially in the destination countries).
This is where we want to jump in and surf on the third wave: Connecting determined volunteers to high quality NGOs and adding our own very personal service to it. It’s kind of like taking a step back and improving the essentials.
