A Different Kind of Vacation
Immerse yourself in a new culture while lending your heart and hands. GiveGetGo adventures pair volunteer building and travel, making for unforgettable, life changing vacations. Be a part of build projects that are uplifting communities from within and connecting travellers to the people and organizations that are making a remarkable difference in their country.
Volunteer Work is the Foundation for Meaningful Discovery
Experience living someone else’s life. Savour the local cuisine, learn a new language and partake in traditional cultural activities. Build a connection with the people whose lives you will help change. You will come away with a true understanding of the impact your contribution has made and with stories of extraordinary adventure.
This is the opportunity to make a change in the world and within yourself. It’s the chance to build something tangible, to have meaningful conversations with community stakeholders, to laugh and smile with your peers, and to establish lifelong friendships − all while taking in amazing sites, sounds, and tastes as you set off to explore a new world.
Building From Within
GiveGetGo was created by three Canadian women with a goal of providing a platform for volunteers to give their efforts to international communities projects that are dedicated to creating a positive and sustainable impact on the lives of many in need. We partner only with established, well-respected, registered charities and NGO’s who need assistance with renovating or building schools and orphanages in developing countries. The builds we work on are part of long-term, community driven projects that, along with these charities, will continue to help people thrive for generations. Volunteers will be working alongside local tradespeople from the community. We are not there to take away jobs, but to give a boost in effort and spirit to these ongoing community projects.
