Working to support disadvantaged young people or trekking the Inca Trail? Why not do both?!

Get the best of both worlds for a volunteering opportunity where you give your skills, rather than your money.

When volunteering with LAFF your skills will be put to good use and you will have the opportunity to work directly with beneficiaries, gain valuable field experience and increase awareness of international development issues.
