Volunteer and Travel! I'm in!

I was looking at Happy News today and they featured an article on "Hands Up Holiday." Why not do both - volunteer at a worthwhile event and take a holiday. Seriously, this is one of the coolest things I've seen yet!


Hands Up Holidays is all about giving you amazing holiday experiences that combine eco-sightseeing with a meaningful 'taste' of volunteering.

These volunteer adventures are for you if:

  • you are interested in having a break, want to explore a destination, and also give something back to the local community.
  • you do not have specific skills, but have a lot of enthusiasm and a positive attitude (and if you do have specific skills, we will match these where possible)
  • you value low-impact, sustainable tourism practices that directly benefit local communities.
  • Most of these trips are upmarket, some of them even luxurious in terms of accommodation, as we know that this is your holiday, and volunteering does not have to involve sleeping on the floor - although we can arrange this if you prefer, and will gladly tailormake a trip to suit your budget and requirements.
