Is volunteering abroad helping or harming the developing world? Is there a way for us to contribute to development while also critiquing it? At Operation Groundswell, we connect with local activists, artists, organizations, farmers and change-makers that are doing incredible work in their communities. This is not your pat-on-the-back volunteer trip, nor is it simply a typical tourists' itinerary. We work hand in hand with our partners on the ground to design meaningful, intentional programs that elevate their work and leave us with more questions than answers. We believe in respect, humility, solidarity, being prepared to change, living life to the fullest and having a thirst for learning. Wanna join?
