As part of our Global Contact exchange programme, we organize global volunteer tours to developing countries – a lifetime experience beyond tourism where you live and work close to the population, expanding your horizon and selfknowledge.
Global Contact is the leading volunteer programme in Denmark. Every year Global Contact send out about a thousand volunteers to 20 different countries in Africa, Asia, Latin-American and the Middle East. The tours are unique as they combine education and volunteer work.
For one month the volunteers receive an education at a Global platform in a developing country in globalisation, developing problems, history and culture. Afterwards they live 3-4 months together with a local family and participate in the work of a local NGO. All people over the age of 18 years can take part in this volunteer programme.
In addition to these long tours Global Contact offers International Workcamps, where volunteers get together 2-3 weeks participating in a project such as building a school in Vietnam, renovating a nature park in South Africa or teaching kids English in India. There are about 3000 workcamps all over the world.
When travelling with Global Contact the volunteers get close to the local culture and population, as they expand their own horizons and make a difference for some of the poorest people in the world.
