VOLUNTOURISM

Voluntourism, gives meaning to both yourself and the place you have visited.

We have hosted nearly 400 volunteers since the start of Assalam and our doors continue to be open for all.

What is Voluntourism?

Voluntourism is a new way of traveling that is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Voluntourism involves tourists going on vacation with the mission to provide a helping hand for a particular project.

Assalam Foundation has hosted more than 400 volunteers through its many projects. Volunteers have taken part in our current projects as well as coming with their own skills and suggestions for programs. Assalam Foundation acts as an intermediary for people to make their ideas a reality and to distribute their aid.
