Hey, your website is great. it is easy to navigate and find the right program. But the program that i went with, VolunteerMatch Ghana, is not a good program. I highly recommend you to remove it from your website. I volunteered there for 6 weeks and the whole experience felt like a scam.

Should be flexible with full refund like other similar companies in case of calamities like this and travel not possible due to reasons beyond control.

I completed the turtle rehabilitation programme in cairns through oceans to earth, via volunteer world. The O2E team where very quick to respond to my questions via email. Unfortunately there was some incorrect information on the page for the programme (via volunteer world website) which I needed to ask about. The project cost thankfully included all accommodation, breakfast (provided by hostel), ferries to and from the island everyday, and donation to the centre, so there wasn’t much you had to pay for outside of this. Working with the turtles every day was absolutely magical! They’re such incredible animals. The team leaders at the centre where friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the centre owner/manager was unwell and so couldn’t spend any time with us. After out volunteering duties we could enjoy the island. The volunteer team leader could usually organise for us to catch the late boat back to cairns so we could spend the afternoon walking, swimming, snorkelling or chilling on the island. Unfortunately there was some miscommunication between volunteer world, O2E and the rehab centre regarding cost and volunteer time which was confusing and frustrating for everyone involved. I understand there is some centre organisational change as well as a change to volunteer rosters which unfortunately ended up effecting my project week. All in all I had an amazing time, just hope the reorganisations can continue without effecting others and communications can become clearer between all party’s. the volunteer world website is confusing and gives you lots of different costs so it’s unclear what you need to pay. Also, the ‘deposit’ you pay to volunteer world does not go towards your project, it’s actually an admin or agency fee, which is misleading.

The projects seem to be well organised and the communication with the team is very easy and warm. I am looking forward to be a volunteer and part of one of the projects!

I think that volunteer world is an easy platform to seek out volunteer opportunities overseas, however I think it can do better in reaching out to more NGOs as the options listed are quite limited.
