Iko Poran Volunteer Abroad is the real thing.
We are a non-profit organization based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Mission Statement:

To make international volunteerism very affordable giving the opportunity for even more volunteers with great intentions to travel and help strengthen social projects all over the world.


Philosophy/Belief Statement:

We partnered with other non-profit organizations working with volunteers in other countries and created an international network to offer a wide range of possibilities for volunteers all over the world to help and contribute in the most affordable way.
Main differences to most of the companies working with international volunteers:
• Volunteerism should not be expensive so more people with good hearts can travel to lend a hand.
• The only volunteer abroad organization based in a developing country that also runs its own developing projects. Almost all the others are mainly profit-oriented traveling companies based in First World nations.
• We are not targeting of generating any profit. All money charged is used to further achieve our mission promoting intercultural exchanges and strengthening a constant and growing number of non-governmental organizations.
• Working directly with local organizations we keep the administration effort at the minimum and do not need to charge any extra handling fee.
• Our volunteers pay their program fee directly to the local partner. There is no extra fee, no intermediary, no playing with their money.

Additional Information:

We want to strengthen cultural understanding and to open new horizons for volunteers and communities alike. Our projects are also intended to help training the involved communities generating income and employment.

Iko Poran operates in partnership with many other local organizations and works with them to design rewarding, safe and meaningful volunteer programs to better serve their communities.

Iko Poran works in a transparent and ethical manner. We share significant revenues with our partner organizations to further develop our programs.
