How is Unearth the World (UTW) different than other companies?
We believe that, while the project you engage in might be short-term, the impact, results, and influence of your time spent abroad should be lasting. We also believe that it is frustrating and counterproductive to engage in volunteer travel without accurate expectations and deep knowledge of the project and culture. So, we support our volunteers from the beginning of their volunteer travel experience until well after they have returned. You can expect robust training, clear communication, and re-entry support.
We believe that everyone should be able to afford to have a volunteer travel experience and know where your money is going. UTW prides ourselves on maintaining reasonable costs that are completely transparent. There is nothing worse than investing time and money into something and not understanding where it is going. We think it is important to understand both the impact and the destination of your financial contributions.
We are a social venture committed to making positive change. We only partner with community driven, sustainable volunteer projects. We collaborate with international non-profits that address real social issues and can benefit from short-term volunteers.
