Inspiring communities and young people around the world to create lasting change
Raleigh NZ is a shiny new branch of Raleigh International – a sustainable development charity based in the UK. They work globally in remote, rural areas to improve access to safe water and sanitation, and build community resilience to sustainably manage natural resources and protect vulnerable environments.
We intend to raise the profile of Raleigh International in NZ, so that more Kiwis’ can explore, and potentially experience, this life changing work.
Raleigh International runs expeditions in Borneo, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Nepal for individuals aged from 17 years and upwards of any nationality or background. Volunteers (aged 17-24) work on community and environmental projects as well as undertaking a tough adventure challenge, and are supported by volunteer managers (aged 25 years and upwards). Expeditions are 5, 7 or 10 weeks for young volunteers and 8 or 13 weeks for volunteer managers.
