About indiGO Volunteers
Why we exist and how we help projects and volunteers
We, Holly & Benjamin founded Indigo Volunteers in 2014. We did so because there are 22,000 children that die a day due to poverty and over 2 billion people that live in on less than $1 a day. That is not something any of us should accept. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Volunteering is one the key ways to overcoming poverty. Yet not enough people are inspired to volunteer, or know how. We exist to change that. We exist help and inspiring more people to volunteer – and we are doing this whilst totally revolutionising the volunteering sector!
Sustainable, responsible, project focused
We have four values and they represent what we stand for and how we work. We expect everyone who works for or with indiGO Volunteers to be accountable to these values, embrace them with energy and use them as the foundation to a brilliant way of working together. They will ensure we achieve our goals in a responsible and sustainable way.

The Volunteer: A Guide to Volunteering by Hugo Chittenden
It is one thing making the move to volunteer, but another knowing what to do next. Hugo Chittenden’s book is a marvellous resource for anyone who has a volunteering trip planned or those looking for some inspiration. Sharing the remarkable, real-life experience of other volunteers, this book is a lesson in endurance, teamwork and humanity. No wonder it comes recommended by David Cameron and Bear Grylls!
And the next 10 people who volunteer with one of the projects listed on our website will receive a FREE copy of this book! But if you can’t wait to get your hands on a copy, then….
