• AGGIORNAMENTO VIAGGIO: Siamo aperti! Aggiornamenti sulla riapertura del programma e risposte alle vostre domande in merito COVID-19 e la nostra politica di prenotazione flessibile.

Entrare nel 2022 è surreale e sono quasi 2 anni che il mondo ha a che fare con il Coronavirus (e le sue varianti!). Nel complesso, milioni di persone in tutto il mondo sono state infettate a causa del virus, anche se il tasso di guarigione è impressionante da un po' di tempo. Mentre alcuni paesi hanno perso il conto delle ondate di panico, siamo felici di dire che i giorni peggiori si spera siano passati, grazie alle iniziative di vaccinazione e ai colpi di richiamo.

Siamo qui per dirvi che, dopo essere stata chiusa per quasi tutto il 2020, Volunteering Solutions ha fatto dei piccoli passi per riavviare i progetti entro il primo trimestre del 2021 - siamo estremamente grati a tutte le anime adorabili che hanno mostrato il coraggio di uscire loro zone di comfort e si sono uniti a noi per aiutare la società in generale.I volontari si sono uniti a noi e hanno lavorato in paesi come Perù, Ghana, Costa Rica, Tanzania, Kenya, Sri Lanka, tra gli altri, e puoi controllare di più sui loro aggiornamenti sulla nostra pagina Instagram .

Attualmente, la maggior parte dei nostri programmi è aperta e abbiamo bisogno del tuo supporto ora più che mai.

Come abbiamo già detto, i vaccini contro il COVID-19 hanno reso i viaggi molto più sicuri di quanto non fosse questa volta l'anno scorso. La maggior parte dei paesi ha revocato le restrizioni di viaggio e le restrizioni di quarantena locali. Tutte le destinazioni hanno il proprio insieme di regole covid locali e le squadre locali le seguono. La maggior parte dei paesi ha rimosso i protocolli relativi all'isolamento e ai progetti Covid.

Volunteering Solutions si concentra incessantemente sul benessere dei volontari e delle comunità ospitanti in tutto il mondo. Non vediamo l'ora di ospitarti, poiché prevedi di viaggiare e fare volontariato all'estero nel 2022-2023. Con un sacco di opportunità di volontariato incredibilmente significative e convenienti, ci aspettiamo che tu abbia un viaggio degno di nota.

Per tutti noi, lo stress di questa pandemia significa che desideriamo viaggiare più che mai.Se sei stato vaccinato, concediti il permesso di goderti i tuoi viaggi e fare la differenza.

È ora di ricominciare a soddisfare la tua voglia di viaggiare!

Which programs are currently open for volunteers?

Currently, most of the countries across the globe have opened up their borders for international travelers and we have reopened our volunteer programs in those countries where the local government and public health guidelines deem it safe. As per the new travel guidelines, most of the countries will require proof of a recent negative Covid-19 test, taken 72 hrs prior to travel, as well as the vaccination certificate.

We're offering a flexible booking policy for all our volunteers who are keen to join us and make a difference in the post-pandemic world. In order to know more, you can check the CDC (Centres for Disease Control & Prevention) list of countries mentioning the risk factors associated with traveling.

For other locations and programs, we are accepting bookings for 2022 - 2023 and we'll update you soon about further reopenings.

Our Flexible Booking Policy

We’re offering the best we can! Participants can avail the flexible booking policy to change travel dates and program destination during this period of uncertainty. All volunteers can change their travel destination, volunteer project or trip dates free of cost as long as you contact us more than 14 days before your start date. If you don’t know when you will be able to travel, we can hold any program fee you’ve paid as a credit on your 'My Account', until you decide when to travel. Our flexible booking policy means that once you’ve paid your registration fee, your money is protected. Any program fee paid by the participants can be used as a credit towards a future trip. Currently we are only offering a travel credit facility for you to travel at a later date in case of any cancellation due to Covid 19 travel restrictions. We are not offering full cash refunds and only travel credits are being offered towards a future trip.

Covid-19 & Volunteer Travel - FAQs

How can I change my travel dates and still go volunteering abroad in 2022-2023 (or maybe later)?

We know that your wanderlustful soul is keeping you on your toes - and we’re offering greater flexibility for changes to travel dates and destinations during this period of uncertainty when the world is still coping up from the pandemic woes. You can reschedule your volunteering trip abroad anytime in 2022 (or later) and we'll be glad to offer you the dates of your choice.

In case you don’t know when you will be able to travel, we shall be happy to hold your registration and any program fee you’ve paid as a credit on your ‘My Account’ until you decide when & where you'd want to travel to.

Since our programs have already started to resume and you are planning to make your bookings now, make sure to keep the following in mind:

  • Get a comprehensive Travel Insurance Policy and make sure it covers you for the eventualities that you are most concerned about.
  • Book refundable flight tickets or wait until the situation gets better. Since we're flexible with changing your program dates & destination, we'd ask you to wait for some time now, and book your flights only when you're closer to your departure date.
  • Do take care of yourself in the best possible manner, try to avoid going out if it's not extremely necessary, and follow the precautionary measures that have been rolled out by the international health organizations.

As they say, ‘Precaution is better than cure’ and we are strictly enforcing the following, across all our volunteering destinations, in order to minimize the risks associated with Covid-19. It's our first priority to ensure the well-being of the volunteers as well as the host communities.

  1. Volunteers will have to get tested before 72 hours of joining the program.
  2. Volunteers will have to abide by the health and safety guidelines provided during the orientation.
  3. Volunteers will have to maintain proper social distancing while working on the project.
  4. Volunteers will have to cooperate with the in-country staff, for disinfecting and sanitizing the accommodation & project site.
  1. Wear a mask whenever you step out.
  2. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after eating, after you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose.
  3. If you do not have access to soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  5. If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care at the earliest.
