“I couldn’t believe that a program so affordable could go above and beyond my expectations.” - Jessica, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
"I would HIGHLY recommend this volunteer experience. I did lots of research going into this trying to find the most affordable program, and Iko Poran was definitely the most affordable. I was doing the same volunteer work as volunteers from all over the world, but I was paying much less money to do so." Paige
"The hostel staff and life was amazing they made me feel right at home and I met awesome people there through my whole stay, the fellow volunteers still feels like family to me, I had enough open time to check out other projects out as well and see Rio by myself!" – Evan (Pretoria, South Africa)
If you’d like to volunteer hands-on with animals, IKPVA has animal conservation programs available: Big Five volunteering in South Africa, saving baby sea turtles in Costa Rica, elephant experience in Nepal and Thailand, where you’ll help protect animals in sanctuaries as well as through research and monitoring endangered species in the wild.
"Everything was perfectly organised, when I came, Felipe was waiting for me at the airport and took me to the hostel. I was nicely surprised the hostel was clean and as I was in my room just with volunteers, I did not need to be worried about my things when I was not there. All the people there were very friendly and kind." – Barbara (Prague)
