Mission Statement

Indigo Volunteers is a charity that recruits volunteers and connects them with humanitarian projects along the European refugee route. We provide a straightforward, fee-free matchmaking service, placing people where they are needed most. On our travels we have found that small grassroots organisations often do not have the time or resources to find volunteers that keep their projects running. Conversely, people who want to volunteer often don’t know where to start, and find it difficult to identify a legitimate project where their talents are really needed. Our aim is to remove these hurdles and create the connections that enable charities to keep going and focus on their objectives.

Description

Indigo was founded to challenge the exploitative practices of for-profit volunteering agencies that charge extortionate fees and seem primarily concerned with selling exotic experiences, rather than considering their actual impact. We want to ensure that volunteering remains true to its core humanitarian purpose: we believe in people helping people, and partner with grassroots charities that are positively dedicated to support communities coping with poverty, displacement and inequality.

We further support projects by advising on volunteer management, facilitating training opportunities and sharing knowledge and resources. As an umbrella organisation, closely collaborating with many different humanitarian actors, Indigo always endeavours to create connections and strengthen ties throughout the independent aid sector.

We partner with projects across the globe, currently with a focus on organisations working along the European refugee route, where urgent help is most needed.
