Responsible Volunteering is an independent, privately owned website not affiliated with any provider of volunteer programs.
We believe that responsible volunteer programs are a great option to those who are willing to spend their time and money to get in touch with different countries, cultures and living conditions. But we know it is a tough challenge to create a program that is really making a change. Therefore we want to inform, support and encourage those who try.
