Expeditions & Service Learning

Select a country: All Cambodia India Israel Kenya Nepal Uganda
In addition to our ongoing global projects, we facilitate expeditions and service learning for volunteers to engage in meaningful, responsible service and authentic cultural immersion. Our programs increase appreciation and awareness all while contributing directly to our program services. Moreover, we work hard to utilize the strengths and skills of our volunteers to meet local opportunities for development. Our volunteers have come from all over the world–Australia, Cambodia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Israel, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, South Korea, Tanzania, Taiwan, Uganda, United Kingdom, and United States.
We like to say there’s no competition in development. But when you think about the millions wasted on handouts and overpriced humanitarian trips, maybe we should voice up…Say “no” to meaningless poverty tourism and hug-an-orphan trips that offer little lasting impact. Say “yes” to a push for self-reliance and sustainability, education and mentoring, micro-enterprise and micro-savings. Say yes” to GOA’s responsible expeditions.
