Volunteer opportunities in St. Lucia
Volunteer plays with children in St. Lucia.

St. Lucia is one of the world's most beautiful islands, with its crystal-blue bays, soft beaches, and mountain vistas. However, its natural beauty can hide its poverty (over 30%) from the average tourist.

Amidst this tropical paradise, children face life-limiting nutrition, health and education challenges. As a volunteer in St. Lucia, you can become part of a groundbreaking demonstration project to change children's future.

Research shows that insufficient nutrition and persistent parasitic and diarrheal disease in developing countries like St. Lucia adversely impacts children's brain development, especially in the earliest years.

This shouldn't happen. That's why we are working with our community partners to help children get out of this trap. That's why we need your help to care for these children, provide them with nutritious meals, as well as educate and encourage the children's parents.

Volunteer in St. Lucia, the West Indies, and leave a legacy.
