Program Name: Sports and Youth Volunteer Abroad in Maldives
Organization: Volunteer Maldives
About Volunteer Maldives: We offer a wide variety of projects which almost anybody can participate in! No matter whether you are skilled or unskilled, young or old, have experience or no experience at all – We will find the perfect project right for you! The best thing is, no matter what project you choose – you will always be just a few steps away from the ocean! Visit uninhabited islands and white powdery beaches in your spare time, help the communities in need and make a difference.
Each volunteer has an opportunity to become a part of Maldives community. The local people of Maldives are very welcoming and will make you feel like at home. If you want to take a family member, or a friend to volunteer abroad with you – you are more than welcome to do so!
Highlights: No matter what country you go to, sport is a big part of each culture. Sport is something that brings people together, unites them, and breaks down the barriers between them. Due to lack of resources and people dedicated to sports development, the Maldives needs volunteers abroad like you to help promote sports and physical development among youths. Come work side-by-side with local team and coaches. Help out during training sessions and work with children on aerobics and fitness.
If sport is not your thing, come work with local youth on improving their skills, teach them computers, handcrafts, and other skills that not only entertain but could possibly develop into a source of income!
