2Way Development is a UK based social enterprise offering meaningful tailor-made volunteering placements abroad in the field of international development. They work in Africa, Asia and Latin America with over 150 partner charities operating in fields of heath, education, human rights, economic development and environmental conservation.
2Way Development believes that volunteer placements should be organised individually. They organise their placements by first understating their volunteer’s skills, background and goals and matching those to the needs to one of their partner charities worldwide. Their team of placement advisors and managers help guide and support their volunteers so that their placements have the potential to change their lives, and the lives of others.
They have placed over 400 volunteers worldwide since 2003 and continue to watch their volunteers and partners grow as people and organisations, having a lasting impact on international development.
What makes 2Way Development special?
What makes us different from other volunteering or gap year agencies is that they treat all their volunteers individually, respecting their unique skills, background and long-term goals. They specialise in working with volunteers that have career goals as a fundamental motivation for a placement and they work hard to make sure their volunteers are placed in the best position to make a lifelong commitment to International Development. Their strength lies in their relationships with their worldwide network of fully vetted partner charities in Latin America, Africa, South and South East Asia and the Pacific. Their volunteers benefit from individual experiences, working alongside passionate and committed charities responding to development issues on the ground, on their own terms.
