Women's Empowerment Volunteer Quests
Work with women and girls in communities in need all over the world.
All over the world, many women and girls still lack sufficient access to education, employment, and health care. Women remain among the most vulnerable members of society. Women’s empowerment and vocational training programs offer sustainable solutions, giving women the tools necessary to gain social and economic independence to lift them and their families out of unhealthy circumstances.
United Planet’s unique Volunteer Abroad program combines volunteering abroad, language learning, cultural activities, and excursions to provide an incredibly fulfilling experience for volunteers and valuable support for communities in need.
Women's Empowerment Volunteer Quest Locations
United Planet supports a home for teenage women and their children who are placed there by a family judge and stay 4-5 years. The children go to school and get after school help and babies stay in day care. Mothers work on-site, take classes, are taught trades, and receive psychological counselling and health care. The goal is to break the cycle of violence by giving them the self-confidence and skills for better jobs. Intermediate Spanish required. Read more
