About indiGO Volunteers
indiGO Volunteers work with courageous humanitarian projects that serve people in impoverished communities and refugee camps. We help them get the brilliant volunteers they need to achieve their bold ambitions. We do not charge a penny to anyone for doing this – we’re the world’s first global totally fee-free volunteering organisation 🙂
We attract people who care for the world so much, that when they see something that’s not right, not fair, and where people suffer, it lights a fire in their belly. They can’t help but try to change it. It could be inequality, oppression, hunger – anything. It doesn’t matter. All that matters is taking a stand and being the change they want to see in the world. They are the courageous, the outliers, the explorers, the kind hearted and the wild ones.

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….
