About indigo Volunteers
Five years ago we (Holly and Benjamin) volunteered in orphanages around Morocco and the experience was simply life changing. Whilst planning our trip to realise our dream to volunteer abroad we explored all possible options. It was then that to our dismay we discovered many companies organising volunteering placements charge the volunteers a fee to do so. We could not believe this was necessary. We then found there are many projects around the world in great need of volunteers to help them achieve their goals yet they struggle to access support. We were frustrated by the needless barriers preventing skilled volunteers from being able to help communities. So we decided to do something about it.
We founded indiGO Volunteers and created this website which provides a list of projects in need of volunteers. It outlines the specific roles and skills each project requires a volunteer for and their contact details. We have handpicked and vetted each project listed. We are the first organisation of this kind; enabling a volunteer to match themselves with a suitable volunteering placement and arrange their trip directly with the project. By providing this platform where volunteers connect directly with projects we are providing a fee-free service, and as a result indiGO Volunteers gives projects access to the volunteering support they otherwise may not have received in the fee system.
