Where Does My Volunteer Fee Go?

“If you charge for your volunteer abroad programmes, where does the money go?”

We aren’t just a student volunteer provider, we are also committed to international development and sustainability goals. We work along-side the top universities, to provide tailored volunteer abroad placements, which provide unique work experience and internship opportunities, but also provides skills and essential funds to our NGO partners.

We are first and foremost a fundraising organisation.

We support our partner NGOs, through carefully managed international development and unrestricted funding.

Where Does My Charity Money Go?

Vocational Impact is a student volunteer abroad and work experience service provider and we support all student volunteers throughout the volunteering abroad process, from fundraising advice through to visa and travel plans.

We also work along side our partner organisations in India, Ghana and South Africa to support their community development, this can include building new schools and funding new projects on the ground.

Vocational Impact support core sustainability goals, and advanced international development models.

Our fees are set to include a direct international development donation to the organisation you volunteer with.

Most student volunteers fundraise for this in fun and innovative ways, or apply for a university bursary or grant.

The volunteer fee then gets sent to the organisation on the ground, to cover hosting you (accommodation, food, travel, airport collection etc etc), and a donation towards their running costs.
