Responsible Volunteering

We know that PHIVolunteering volunteers want to make a genuine difference when they are volunteering abroad. We also know that they expect PHIVolunteering and our partners to operate responsibly and to make a lasting positive contribution to communities. We could not agree more and we have long had a commitment to these two principles as a core part of the PHIVolunteering approach.
As a global organization, PHIVolunteering and its volunteers interact with a vast network of people, communities and ecosystems everyday. We plan to be around for a while so we are committed to making sure that these interactions are positive ones. In short, if we act responsibly and always consider the long-term impact of our programs and operations then we are not only supporting the communities we work with, but we are also ensuring that our organization can continue to thrive long into the future. That is what sustainability means to us.
The following policies outline our approach to addressing a number of issues that are important to our long-term sustainability. Of course, none of them mean that you can not have fun as well.
