Volunteering overseas can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, opening up your horizons and expanding your world view. We believe that poverty is a breakdown of wholeness in any area of life and, whilst we often work to alleviate the ‘material poverty’ in the lives of our partners, we so often find that we come away having received more than we can give as they alleviate our ‘social poverty’. The experience is so wonderfully, mutually beneficial as we learn from each other and all become the richer.

In Links our aim is to ensure this exchange: that as our volunteers invest their time and knowledge that they also receive and are challenged by the heroes we are partnering with.

Though it may sound clichéd, we know these experiences are life-changing and enrich people’s future in so many ways.

Whether the next step for you is joining a short-term trip, taking a gap year to serve or perhaps moving out longer term we would encourage you to take that step. Your life will never be the same!
