Volunteering Trip Extension

Your volunteering opportunity will give you an incredible insight into the factors that influence the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa, and the role The Nasio Trust plays in giving communities the opportunity to change their lives.

Whether you decide to get involved with one of our many projects, or help out at the Noah’s Ark or St. Irene’s Day care centres, the time and energy you invest will make an incredible difference to the lives of people in desperate need. The cost is usually around £150.

But it doesn’t end there…

So many of our past and present volunteers have found the experience intensely rewarding on a personal level. Seeing the sometimes desperate conditions faced by the people we work with on a daily basis, has a habit of putting many first world problems in perspective.

“Very moving experience! There are absolutely no agencies serving the region apart from The Nasio Trust, and their need is great, the children are massively exposed to a whole range of risks. The good news is a little goes a long way”
Phoebe, Wallingford School, aged 15
