Our placements are flexible in length, available all year round and have work that can accommodate for people with experience or studies in an area, as well as those that are hard working and eager to learn. We work within the fields of environmental and wildlife conservation inland and in the seas, as well as in community development projects - including work with education, child care, sports development, women's empowerment, building, micro-finance, working with disadvantaged groups and a variety of other areas. You can also find structured internships in organisations making a difference, to gain work experience in the fields of marketing, journalism, healthcare, business development, veterinary work and many other specialised areas.
