Further information

Low wages and high unemployment in developing countries means that families and children often do not get appropriate, nutritional meals that encourage growth and development. Part of this is a lack of adequate education on how to manage budgets and nutritional values required.

Volunteer with Kaya Responsible Travel and work on a placement where you can share your knowledge of dietary requirements and create educational materials and meal ideas for the community that they can reproduce over and over again using local produce.

By sharing something so simple, your work can make a huge difference to the lives of families of children alike, who struggle to survive in the conditions of poverty. Work on these projects is a great way to expand volunteers experience and knowledge of nutritional issues internationally.

Volunteers are required in four locations; Philippines, Bolivia, Costa Rica and Peru. There are no specific qualifications required, but experience or study background in the area of nutrition or dietetics would be extremely useful. Project fees apply, but include accommodation, airport pick ups, food, orientation and 24h support.
