What we do to ensure our volunteer projects remain ethical

Ethical Volunteering

Travel Teacher takes extensive care to ensure that our work placement experiences are conducted to the highest possible standard, with a particular focus on the quality and the outcomes of our projects.

We have developed our own non-profit charity

The Travel Teacher Foundation is a non-profit charity that works alongside Travel Teacher. Our charity is designed to give you as a Volunteer the opportunity to help support your chosen project. 100% of your fundraising money goes directly to our projects. The Travel Teacher gives you a voice. You will help us to decide how your fundraising is used by giving direct input to identify what is needed to develop the project for the future.

Non-Profit Volunteer Work Placements

Travel Teacher offers non-profit volunteer work placement experiences. We do not gain any profit from our volunteer programmes. Travel Teacher acts as a connector that facilitates the training, logistics and itinerary for international volunteers to be placed at our projects.

Long Term commitment and sustainability

We are committed to the long term continuity sustainability of our projects. We achieve this by delivering regular projects to support our partnered schools throughout the year. We offer short term volunteering experiences to assist with the delivery of curriculum at our partnered schools as well as medium term internships. We are passionate about continuity and believe this is paramount in making a difference to our projects.

Volunteers will never replace local employment

We make sure that volunteers never replace local jobs but provide additional support that would otherwise not be received. This is very relevant to our development programmes which are conducted in local schools. Volunteers will never replace the school teacher but instead offer additional support.

Responsible Donations

All donations made to The Travel Teacher Foundation are for the provision of equipment & regeneration of the facilities at our partnered schools. We do not hand over money directly. All donations are tangible, that way we can ensure that your fund raising is put to its full use.
