Care Work

Care work is an incredibly selfless act, and a hugely rewarding way to spend time overseas.

Lend a helping hand on a care work placement overseas and discover how your dedication and interaction with local orphans and underprivileged children can help to promote a better quality of life and provide crucial interpersonal and developmental skills.  

As you transfer you knowledge, friendship, and passion for life onto the vulnerable children that you will work with, you will have a direct impact on their lives, creating strong bonds and developing beautiful relationships that will stay with you for a long time after you have left your placement.

Browse the list of possible trips below and see where your interest in working with children in a care work role can take you!

  • On arrival, I felt as unprepared as can be, knowing no one, having no plans nor ideas of how to get along in New Zealand really. The in-country team did it all for me. Organise my trip. Booking it. Coming from experienced backpackers you know what's going on and getting to know awesome people from all around the world and maybe even some mates to travel with.
