Better World Volunteers

What We Do

Better World Volunteers considers international travel to have the power to change lives and everyone should have an opportunity to participate in a program abroad.

Our organisation has brought meaningful first-hand learning opportunities to hundreds of educational institutions, students, parents, and individuals eager to expand their vision of the world.

  • We make quality, responsible and safe international volunteer travel genuinely affordable
  • Our volunteers provide assistance to the achievement of long-term community goals in Tanzania
  • We provide cultural engagement experiences, achieved by living and working with local people, communities, organisations and families

Why are we the best international volunteer program?

Our volunteer programs are requested and designed by the communities in which we work. BWV listens and understands the people’s needs and requirements and ensures that that the programmes we delivered are tailored to fulfilling these appeals.


We are the best international volunteer program because we are non-profit organisation. We have high standards and ethics to follow, therefore we must ensure our volunteers are suitable for the programmes. Your health and safety whilst in Tanzania are paramount to us as an organisation and therefore you will be accommodated at our home base where there is 24-hour security, safe and delicious local food and other volunteers to interact with who are sure to become your lifelong friends. We also know that you want to soak in the local culture, so we are able to arrange cultural activities to make sure that you’ll forever feel like a real part of the place where you volunteer.

Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage people to volunteer for worthwhile work in developing countries in order to empower cross-cultural service that improves the health, education and economic opportunities for vulnerable women, children and elderly. We are an international social organisation with no political or religious affiliations. As more people join us, we aim to create a multi-national community with a passion to serve, learn, understand, teach, inspire, and to be inspired by you.

We are focused on providing affordable volunteer travel experiences that are responsible, safe and high quality. Our programs heighten global awareness and cultural understanding through the skills and expertise taken by volunteers to their host communities, and through the experiences and lessons that volunteers take back to their own countries and cultures.

Since the beginning, we have been an entrepreneurial start-up that’s proudly youthful, non-corporate and tech focused. We understand that every volunteer dollar is hard-earned, and we work tirelessly to deliver value.

We are passionate about volunteer travel, the communities we work with and the individual volunteers we interact with every day. We are an organisation made up of real people with diverse ideas and personalities and we never forget that our volunteers are just as unique.

Our Core Values

Better World Volunteers believes change happens through action. Our “action” is providing hands-on immersive experiences abroad through internship and volunteer programs. We believe that these experiences can change a life, a community, and the world.

CONTRIBUTION We believe in helping where help is needed, even in far-away places, whether it is needed by an individual, an institution, or an entire community; we respond to need as effectively as we can with our abilities and our resources.

TRUSTED Being trusted is imperative to Better World Volunteers. We are honest, open and transparent about how we operate, volunteers can count on us to keep them informed, to keep them safe and to always deliver when we make a commitment.

COMMUNITY We believe that our colleagues, our volunteers, and our partners, who make up our multi-national community determine our success. We recognise that each individual has a unique ability to contribute to which we must nurture

CULTURE We believe in the value of cultural exchange between people from different communities; such exchange helps to create a world with a greater mutual respect and understanding for one another.

It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it
