Cultural Exchange

people and places responsible volunteering

people and places (www.travel-peopleandplaces.co.uk)is based in the UK and has evolved from the recognition that many volunteer recruitment organisations are out of step with the needs of local communities and volunteers. The approach specifically matches individual volunteers to projects. The starting point for every project is the local community – their needs and those of the project are paramount.

In the beginning of 2007, we signed an agreement with people and places to become their local partners in Nepal. Since the start of 2008, we have started receiving volunteers at two project sites.
