About Humanitize Expeditions

Humanitize Expeditions is a humanitarian organization devoted to helping people like YOU become humanitarian aid workers. Many relief organizations require experience, a second language, education you may not have yet, or require a long-term commitment incompatible with your life, but not with Humanitize Expeditions. We offer 9 day trips where you will live in a foreign country working on a variety of projects with a small group of volunteers while you get to know and interact with members of the community.  

 

Teams operate general medical clinics providing care to families as well as specialty services such as physical therapy and vision screening. Other projects may include teaching and performing in the local elementary schools and orphanages.  There are opportunities to provide continuing education and training to medical professionals, caregivers, firefighters, paramedics and midwives.  You may also find yourself installing solar panels, teaching villagers how to sew on hand-crank machines, and interviewing scholarship applicants.

 

We will match your skills to the needs of the people you are coming to serve as you learn from them and grow to love these new friends. 

You will also study global issues and exchange thoughts and ideas with others. You will make memories and friends for life.....the world will never look the same.
