Globalteer is different to most organisations placing volunteers. As a UK registered charity (registration number 1119706), Globalteer is legally required to ensure that all monies received are used to promote our charitable objectives. We achieve this in two ways:
- We keep all our costs to a minimum so that as much money as possible reaches the volunteer projects and the needy communities we work with. Visit the "Where your money goes" and "About Us" pages for a more detailed breakdown of how we invest donations. We also actively encourage you to check and ask questions of other volunteer organisations to compare the required donation/fees and how these monies are allocated to benefit your chosen project. Some major organisations charge a considerable fee to place volunteers and not a single penny goes directly to support the project. Some are purely profit-making commercial companies who act as volunteer travel agents. That’s where Globalteer is very different!
- We are very selective about the projects we work with, and only work with effective and worthwhile projects that we believe are making a long term and sustainable difference to the communities we work with.
In addition to the above, we provide full in-country support so that your stay is as enjoyable and rewarding for you as it is valuable for the project you work with.
