Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Sport & Development Project Colombia

 

Description

We are a sport for peace and development project aimed at empowering at-risk youth and children to initiate positive change through the power of sport.

Our project uses football training to develop the life skills and opportunities for a group of children in one of the poorer parts of town.

When we were travelling we noticed there were not so many opportunities to get involved in volunteering in Colombia so one of our aims was to organise easy to access volunteering opportunities in Bucaramanga.

We welcome volunteers to help with anything from working with the children to fundraising. We'd love you to share your skills with us.

Reviews

Amazing & rewarding experience. Highly recommended!
"Thank you for a great week! The work of the foundation is really important for the community and it was a pleasure to be a part of it. We loved visiting the neighbourhood and meeting so many amazing people. We really enjoyed getting to know the children and helping with football training, cooking and homework club. We even managed to learn some Spanish! This experience has been the highlight of our time in Colombia. We would definitely recommend volunteering here to anyone travelling in Colombia. Viva Bucaramanga!"- Séamus O'Dwyer
