As a traveler, I seek depth more than breadth in my experiences abroad. I appreciate any opportunity to get off the beaten tourist track, and into the craft and customs of the locals where non­commercial cultural exchange can happen. Give A Day Global makes this readily possible in a safe and truly meaningful way for which I am grateful.

The children were amazing and it was easy to get there and get involved. I would highly recommend checking them out if you have some time during your travels in Cape Town.

We volunteered on our Honeymoon in Costa Rica and I would recommend it to everyone! There is no better way to truly learn about a country and its people than to volunteer and give back to the community.

Spending a day with Masicorp was one of the more meaningful things I did during my stay in Cape Town. They gave us a safe, exciting experience into the culture and provided us with the opportunity to give back to the community. It was wonderful having lunch with one of the businesses they support and seeing the beautiful coast of Cape Town.

Stride Review

Founded in 2012, Give A Day Global is an organization that helps travelers connect with a social organization in the destination they are traveling to for a day. Generally, community organizations ask for longer term commitments from volunteers, so travelers just there for a short time are not able to volunteer. Give a Day Global makes it possible by partnering with local organizations to allow travelers to volunteer for a day and give back.

Who is this good for?

Travelers wanting to spend one free day of their trip to volunteer in the destination where they are traveling. A great opportunity for families as it helps impart the notion to budding travel enthusiasts that traveling can also be about giving back to local communities. And Give A Day Global provides a concrete way to do so. A suggested donation of $100 per adult and $25 per child is requested and all of it goes to the organization.

What Makes This Company Stand Out?

Give A Day Global is a not for profit organization. It has a portfolio of partnerships with community organizations in several different countries, and allows travelers to choose the organization they want to volunteer with.

Where Does Give A Day Global Operate?

Give A Day Global currently partners with community organizations in Asia, South America, Africa and Central America & Caribbean, but are continuously seeking to partner with local organizations all over the world.

How Does it Work?

Give A Day Global makes it possible to add one day of volunteering into your travel itinerary. Traditionally volunteer abroad programs require a long commitment from their volunteers and don’t allow shorter periods due to coordination issues. Thus day travelers or vacationers who are interested in giving back to local communities are left out.

Give A Day Global only works with community organizations that have a reputable standing and have shown continuous dedication to improving the lives in their community. Each organization must successfully pass rigorous screenings before becoming verified. Give A Day Global is free to participate in, though a suggested donation of $100 per adult and $25 per child is requested.

Why Travel With Give a Day Global?

Give A Day Global is a good choice for passionate travelers who are interested in learning and helping the community they are traveling within. Especially if facing time constraints, Give A Day Global provides a way for travelers and vacationers to incorporate an aspect of humanitarian work into their travels.

From Give A Day Global

Give a Day Global offers the unique opportunity for travelers to volunteer for just one day at nonprofit organizations across the globe.

Our Mission:

Give A Day Global’s mission is to connect international travelers with daylong volunteer opportunities in order to help our nonprofit partners build capacity and expand their networks of support.

Our Vision:

We believe that all people should have access to education, healthy food, medical care, a sustainable environment, and economic opportunities. By connecting travelers with nonprofit organizations who pursue these same goals, we aim to engage more people in making the world a better place, one day at a time.

How do we do it?

We team up with reputable nonprofit organizations near tourist destinations in Africa, Asia, and the Americas to bridge travelers with projects that are accessible, meaningful, and that may inspire involvement that can continue from afar.

How do you do it? It’s simple:

  • Travel
  • Give a day
  • Stay connected with us throughout your experience
  • Keep on giving

 

Who we partner with:

We carefully vet our partner organizations to assess their effectiveness, to ensure they have sound financials, and to verify their reputation for integrity and community impact.

The organizations we are looking for must meet these requirements:

Location: located near an urban hub or tourist destination.

Language: Have staff that speak English fluently for interacting with our volunteers and communicating with Give A Day Global staff.

Communications: Have reliable access to phone and internet communications.
Community Participation: Involve and empower the community they are serving.

Financial integrity: Have transparent and verifiable financial records that demonstrate fiscal responsibility.

Legal Structure: Be a registered 501c3 in the US or have a registered fiscal sponsor in the US.

Trips & Specials

Since we are a nonprofit we don’t tend to have specials or promotions. We do have a suggested donation of $100 per adult and $25 per child. 100% of the suggested donation is distributed to the selected nonprofit organization where the traveler volunteers.
