Project Details

Rainbow Garden Village specialises in worldwide volunteer placements and has been sending volunteers on impactful, life-changing trips since 1999.

From Africa to Asia and Europe to Latin America and Oceania - through volunteering or internships our participants gain unique impressions and experiences abroad. Rainbow Garden Village (RGV) offers sustainable projects in more than 30 countries worldwide in various fields, such as social work, teaching, animal welfare, environmental protection, medicine, etc..

While our participants are engaged in their project, they broaden their horizons and become more open-minded. They strengthen their personal skills, grow from the challenges in their volunteer projects and also improve their language skills. Countless new impressions, experiences and special moments round off the stay abroad - and lead to a return with many exciting stories in the luggage!

Social Impact

If you’ve decided that volunteering is your calling for your next trip, then you’ll be in for an unforgettable experience, as will the people you’ll help. You’ll receive the correct prep, carefully selected projects and a support structure to ensure you can have the best possible experience.

RGV pays special attention to sending volunteers away in the best possible way. You’ll have loads of personal advice from one of our experts, based on the 20+ years experience we’ve been operating across Africa and Asia. We also have on-site RGV teams in every country we work in, so you’ll be secure in the knowledge you’ve got people there to help you settle and deal with any issues you may have.

Social projects are some of the most influential that can be offered, and as such, RGV ensures that all social programmes last an absolute minimum of 4 weeks, which can go up to anything near a year. Through this, you’ll have plenty of time to build up trust, get to know the project well and find your area to make an impact. We make sure that you are there to support, and therefore not take jobs from the local community.

We also do not work with orphanage projects to ensure we can help protect the children. We pay close attention and adhere to strict guidelines for every project for the protection of children. We also have our animal protection projects carefully checked to ensure they meet the required criteria. Whatever you decide to do, you can be assured that RGV ensures that you'll have an incredible experience, contributing to a project that is ethically run, and for the benefit of the local community.
