Why Me to We trips are different
Support celebrated sustainable development
Each Me to We volunteer trip takes place in a community where our charity partner, Free The Children, puts its 20-year history of holistic, sustainable development to work. And half of our profits are donated to Free The Children—helping you make an even bigger impact on the place you visit.
Make An Impact
When you volunteer on a Free The Children development project you support one of five pillars—clean water, food security, education, health or alternative income—that eliminate the obstacles to education, eliminate poverty and empower women in a community. Your volunteer work is driven by the community and its needs. Alongside locals, you will dig trenches for water systems, lay foundations for schools, plow farmland or plant crops.
Connect with learners and leaders from a different culture
Meet and work with community members from another culture and understand their joys and challenges. Talk to learners and community leaders, who are proud, equal partners in these holistic initiatives. Expand your worldview by experiencing different culture, language and customs. Through hands-on work experience, gain empathy, compassion and understanding for different cultures and environments.
Be part of the solution
Under the guidance of highly trained and experienced facilitators, engage in leadership training, skill-building workshops and action planning so when you return home, you have the tools to give back to your community. Leave a Me to We Trip with a deeper understanding of sustainability and development issues, while gaining a new perspective.
