A career break is the perfect opportunity to volunteer abroad and contribute to community development in some of the poorest regions of the world. But with so many options for your career break abroad, why should you book a trip with MondoChallenge? Booking a volunteering programme through a specialist organisation cuts out much of the stress and risk involved with organising a career break. At MondoChallenge, we believe we can offer a lot more. We offer some of the most meaningful and memorable experiences around and this can largely be attributed to our values.
At MondoChallenge we are committed to promoting ethical and responsible volunteer work overseas and to building a sustainable development model that can continue to provide the best possible service to our partners abroad as well as to our current, future and past career break volunteers.
We are passionate about meeting the needs of our customers and partner projects, and look to act with integrity, empathy and energy to create innovative voluntary programmes to fulfil their aspirations. Our values ensure that we identify and support only those volunteer projects that have a genuine need, and by collaborating with local charities and NGOs we can ensure that our volunteers make a real difference in underprivileged communities.
In our eyes there are no quick fix methods for issues like hunger, poverty and illiteracy, and we are committed to international development on a long term basis. Sustainability is central to everything we do and we are proud of the positive impact our voluntary work has had over the last decade.
Although the financial contribution of our volunteers must inevitably cover the costs of setting up and delivering our career break projects, our sister charity, the FutureSense Foundation, raises funds and provides financial support for our development projects overseas.
We are not a funding organisation but we know from experience that the contributions we do provide go much further than many international aid programmes!
