Travel beyond the 5 star resorts to the breath-taking remote islands of the Maldives and experience authentic local island life at its best while supporting community development projects. Because of the remote location of the islands there is a lack of human resources to move forward with a variety of community initiatives. You will have an opportunity to assist local NGOs with enabling the local people to work effectively in promoting and advancing the interests of the rural communities to attain basic needs and to create a solid foundation for sustainable development. Your participation in this unique opportunity will assist with poverty alleviation in the community by promoting equity and equality.
There are volunteer opportunities in a variety of different sectors from education, environmental conservation, healthcare, climate change prevention & awareness, grant writing, and various research opportunities. Travel Roots will work with you to coordinate a volunteer program that is suited to your interests and fills a need in the community.
During your stay you will have plenty of time to enjoy the island life and on the weekends you will have time to snorkel or SCUBA dive, try surfing and wake boarding, have private island picnics, go fishing, and relax on the pristine beaches.
