General Information

Agency Name:
Help International
Help International is a volunteer based non-profit organization that sends volunteers abroad to alleviate poverty through sustainable development projects. Volunteers, interns, and country directors travel abroad to fight poverty in Peru, India, Thailand, Fiji, Nepal and Uganda. Countries are subject to change. Volunteers work with partner organizations in-country on sustainable development projects. Projects may include teaching English, building a school, improving water sanitation, building gardens, teaching feminine hygiene, and much more. Many volunteers receive internship credit for their experience abroad. This program is for applicants age 18 to 34 unless otherwise approved.
Mission Statement:
The mission of Help International is to empower people to fight global poverty through sustainable, life-changing development programs. Our unique model allows college-aged volunteers, interns, and young professionals to contribute and catalyze the efforts of local partners on the ground. Help International aims to assist relatively inexperienced and mostly academically trained participants to become social entrepreneurs who understand the complexities of poverty and play an active role in efforts to improve the quality of life of some of the most vulnerable populations in the world.
