KAASO has been welcoming volunteers since 2006 - and many of those volunteers have come back again and again. Volunteering at KAASO is not just a one-off experience, it is to become part of a unique community, a school and a family. You simply cannot come to KAASO and not be moved by the spirit, tenacity, determination and hope of the people. It is an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
We invite self-motivated, forward-thinkers with open minds to KAASO. Your duties will not be handed to you - there is no set format, no text book. With respect, empathy, and personal motivation, you can find your own unique way to make a difference.
Our very first volunteers came to KAASO through Kids Worldwide, a volunteer organisation with a difference - they charge no admin fees and ensure that all funds go directly to the projects in-country. To this day, Kids Worldwide is still "run by volunteers for volunteers", a philosophy we have continued at KAASO. While we now accept volunteers directly through our own website, we are forever grateful for the guidance and support we received in the early days with Kids Worldwide, helping to launch KAASO onto the world stage and inspiring us to create our own ethical and meaningful volunteer experience.
