World Life Experience Project
Every day there are stories of catastrophes occurring around the World. Through media and social outlets, we are informed of World Issues that plague people, communities, cities, and countries without resolve. We hear about the horrors that our fellow mankind endure without a positive solution to these epidemics.
However, everyday heroes join together in forming organizations (NGO’s) to help provide temporary relief or even possible solutions to these epidemics, many without any recognition or acknowledgment of their passion to make a difference. With little assistance and attention, many of these NGO’s struggle to meet the rise of demand for their services compared to the rising costs of resources needed to remain operating.
As a way to highlight and to educate others on today’s World issues and the NGO’s developed to meet these challenges, the World Life Experience Project was created as a vision for understanding and change. The World Life Experience Project is an International Social project focused on social responsibility and cultural understanding through hands-on curated, volunteer experiences. These experiences are created through a one year program of selected international individuals traveling around the World that interact and serve international communities and non-government organizations.
Our MISSION is to create and foster a community of conscientious travelers by connecting volunteers, NGOs, and organizations to make a positive impact in the world. Through these curated volunteer experiences, our VISION is to inspire new generations of changemakers around the world.
Our group of selected international members will be composed of volunteers of 11 different countries and cultures across the globe. During this experience, these volunteers will learn how to understand, interact, and work with a team of international cultures and backgrounds. This group will also focus on hands-on experiences to work with and learn about a select group of global and local NGOs across different areas such as children rights, human rights, elderly care, animal rights, refugee relief, human trafficking, education, sustainability, environmental conservation, etc.
With over 25,000 applications from around the world, we have diligently and carefully selected 11 individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, education, and ages. These selected individuals will come together and begin their journey in Lisbon Portugal in April 2019. From there, the group will learn to work together and embark on a one year mission visiting 20 NGOs in 20 countries (6 in Europe, 5 in Asia, 4 in Africa, and 5 in South America). With hands-on volunteer experiences, the team will be challenged physically, mentally, and emotionally on today’s biggest issues.
With continual coverage via social media and local news outlets, the group will share their stories, discoveries, and takeaways for each experience they encounter. Also, all participating NGOs will be highlighted via our social media outlets to help spread awareness of their cause and encourage support via post sharing and providing an option for donations for each NGO.
With this educational experience, our team of volunteers will gain a unique exposure to different cultural views and understandings of global issues and NGOs. With this acquired knowledge and newly developed network, each individual will have the tools necessary to become influencers in their local communities and become part of a growing community of global game changers.
Support of any level will help!
Our Goal: Raise EUR 200,000
As you can imagine, one of the biggest challenges for any new and ambitious project is financing. To support the continuation of our project, we often seek partnerships and sponsorships to help keep the project running. However, as this is still considered a newly developed project with a short history, we also rely heavily on the kindness of our friends and families to support and believe in our mission and vision.
Your support, however small or large, will contribute to covering the project’s operational costs (i.e. Transportation, accommodation, food, insurance, NGO donations, monthly living expenses, operating costs).
