UNI BREAK VOLUNTEERING IN THE MALDIVES WITH VOLUNTEER MALDIVES
Volunteer Maldives is committed to making a real and tangible difference to these warmand friendly communities – which sometimes need a little help!When you travel with us you can rest assured that the work you do will directly benefit the islanders that have been identified by these local communities and the NGO’s we work with.
All of our partners are based in the local community. They are in partnership with Volunteer Maldives rather than employed by Volunteer Maldives. When you travel with us, you will stay in locally run accommodation/homes and travel on locally owned transport.In this way we can ensure that the part of your placement fee assigned for transport and accommodation goes directly into the local economy. That means that before you’ve even lifted a finger on your project, you’ve already made an important contribution to the local economy.
Our volunteers will live in the heart of the communities, in basic home stay accommodation as part of the family, or some islands have specific accommodation just for volunteers.
As part of the ‘Maldives’ experience, you’ll eat local food, use local transport, and definitely do as the locals do! You’ll find the islanders will take great care of youand welcome you into their community where activities on your days off will include asisland hopping, snorkelling, go to deserted sandbanks for picnics, venture your for a spot of night fishing then come back and barbeque your fresh catch – such a unique experience you’ll not find in too many places in the world!
We offer a variety of exciting and fun projects from Teaching/ Teaching Assistant places: – This is a wonderful way to engage with the children. Help them improve their English language skills, do fun creative activities with them, motivate and inspire them!
Sports are enjoyed by people the world over, and Maldivians are no exception! It’s still one of the best ways to unite people, creating strong community spirit and forging lifelong friendships.
Our sports programs have been very successful, with more to be implemented next year, working with new islands and NGO’s.
Volunteer Maldives works alongside local coaches who are either part of a youth and sports group, or work within schools.
Whether teaching aerobics, badminton, volleyball, football, dance – a myriad of opportunities await volunteers with lots of energy and enthusiasm to inspire the youth – and to get the more mature islanders moving also!
