Volunteer Invest is the Arms Around the Child volunteer abroad programme. Founded in the winter of 2015 with a dream of linking professional volunteers to projects in Ghana, India and South Africa.
We’re a social enterprise working with groundbreaking charity partners achieving incredible results in the areas of human rights, child development, child therapy and HIV/AIDS treatment.
Connecting value-driven, socially-conscious change makers with the opportunity to contribute to, learn from and experience frontline social work in action.
In this way, we believe our volunteer programme has the potential to achieve social impact on an exponential scale as the exchange of skills, knowledge and ideas continues to spread from community to community.
What Makes Us Different
We’re a small team united by a shared interest in social impact. So we put in place a 80:20 promise. 80% of our fees go direct to our partners, with only 20% retained to cover our running costs. This is highly unusual for an industry where 50:50 is the norm!
