Give while you travel.
GIVE is a homegrown, Seattle volunteer organization that unites international volunteering with adventure travel to create a meaningful volunteer experience abroad. GIVE was established on the creed that the global volunteer audience is captivated by contemporary and innovative development projects coupled with cultural and sustainable tourism. GIVE has mobilized several hundreds of volunteers and generated thousands of dollars for community development projects overseas.
GIVE Example Volunteer Project, Nicaragua
Past volunteers built a technical school utilizing plastic bottles and recycled materials. The school is complete with three classrooms, running water, four toilets, and a self-composting sustainable septic system. Volunteers recycled multiple tons of petroleum products into the building process and reused 15,000 plastic bottles, all generated from a community organized recycling program. The school’s curriculum varies from elementary general education to secondary education coupled with vocational training on specific skill sets, such as marine mechanics, carpentry, and hospitality.
GIVE continues to generate substantial scholastic donations to support our English reading and writing program managed by local instructors and volunteers overseas.
What makes GIVE different?
GIVE prides itself on breaking the mold of what is typically found in today’s provision of foreign aid and development. We look to inspire and promote global change through a refined focus on sustainable, contemporary ideas and practices. Our methodologies provide platforms for new technologies and possibilities for development. We seek to mobilize local assets and social frameworks, in order to increase the communal capacity for development. GIVE is physically, financially, and emotionally invested in all of our projects and our volunteers.
We know that there are many volunteer opportunities today, regardless of where and how you choose to donate your time, please take the plunge and put forth something for the greater good.
