THE VOLUNTEER NETWORK
Worldwide Helpers is a non profit social network created to foster partnerships between volunteers and charitable organisations worldwide. It commits itself to removing the financial barriers of volunteering by providing only low/no cost projects. It raises awareness of organisations whilst at the same time providing them with the manpower and knowledge they need to survive.
Worldwide Helpers gives volunteers & organisations the power to share, connect and make a difference.
Welcome to the volunteer network specifically designed to connect volunteers and organisations from around the world on one platform. A place to connect, discover common interests, share ideas, hopes and dreams.
A comprehensive range of features and functionality will allow you to create a personal profile and show the world where your interests lie, or tell everyone about the help your organisation needs.
We hope our platform will help get volunteers to where they are needed most, and also deliver solutions to issues all around the world through the sharing of knowledge and experience. That by sharing our experiences, we will encourage others to volunteer.
More than anything we hope that you enjoy using the platform and that interacting with like-minded volunteers and organisations around the world will inspire you to do more.
