Connecting with local communities
At the Mad Cow Project we work hard to offer fun and meaningful opportunities to volunteers. For us, this means forming and maintaining long-term relationships with local communities, experiencing each trip ourselves, and developing materials to help you develop skills that can be applied volunteering, in your workplaces and everyday lives.
Our volunteering takes us to a variety of emerging communities in different countries, from remote coastal townships, to mountain villages, city fringes and regional centres, and into the thriving heart of rapidly developing cities. Each location provides a unique opportunity to explore how your skills, experience, and efforts can contribute.
The landscapes, cultures, languages, foods and people are key to getting to know these communities. As a volunteer with the Mad Cow Project you get to experience this as a guest. By doing so, you not only support local jobs and the economy but importantly, give the local community a sense of pride that their homes, their skills and that their lives are unique and valuable.
