Professional long-term volunteering opportunity
"I loved my time with NPH. I volunteered for one year with NPH Mexico and one year in Honduras as a Communications Officer. It was great professional experience, my Spanish improved significantly and I really felt part of the community. I was well-supported as a volunteer and the year-long programme enabled me to form relationships and make a real contribution. Highly recommend!"- Amanda Rupasinghe
Life Changing
"I volunteered with NPH Guatemala. Needless to say it was one of the most profound experiences of my life. I actually continue to visit the children (and staff) 5 years later. It was not easy that's for sure, it was a real rollercoaster ride but an invaluable experience I will treasure forever. I would thoroughly recommend this if you've ever felt compelled to make a real difference in children's lives."- Vanessa French
Amazing volunteer experience
"I embarked on my volunteer service year at NPH Honduras in 2013 and I loved it so much I decided to stay for an extra year. It was a life-changing experience which taught me so much. The volunteer programme is well run and organised. I felt incredibly supported during my time as an English teacher volunteer. NPH is a wonderful organisation that I continue to support today."- Loren O'Sullivan
