About us:
Kaya is a responsible travel organization with a focus on genuine and meaningful volunteer projects worldwide. Working with existing community projects that have a genuine need for the physical aid of volunteers, every participant is welcomed and is useful.
With positions for skilled and unskilled workers, there are projects to suit everyone who wants to get involved. We help to shape these initiatives and establish foundations upon which the people of that country can build and develop themselves. And we ensure that the members of those communities we work with are open and eager to learn and discover our culture, as we become a part of theirs. Kaya aim to bring together the quality and impact of grass roots projects with the breadth of choice, quality of structure and organisation and level of service that gives everyone the opportunity to contribute to positive action and enjoy traveling the world more responsibly.
