Volunteer in The Maldives
Join Travel Teacher in the tropical nation and embark on a journey beyond the 5 star resorts to the breathtakingly remote islands of The Maldives. Experience local culture at its best whilst supporting our education and community development projects. In Partnership with Secret Paradise Maldives and Sunshade Volunteers our meaningful travel expedition in The Maldives provides you with an opportunity to assist local non government organisations with a variety of community initiatives.
Because of the remote location of the islands there is a lack of human resources to move forward with a variety of community initiatives. You will work with local people in promoting and advancing the interests of the rural communities to attain basic needs and to create a solid foundation for sustainable development. Your participation in this unique opportunity will assist with poverty alleviation in the community by promoting equity and equality.
