About UBELONG

Year Founded: 2009

UBELONG is a social organization based in Washington, DC. We offer one week to six months international volunteering opportunities throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Our focus areas include conservation, education, caregiving, healthcare, business, NGO support, and women's empowerment. We are a recognized leader in responsible international volunteering. We are not a voluntourism company that charges exorbitant prices and seeks only to profit by pumping as many volunteers as they can into projects that do not need them. Becoming a UBELONG volunteer means being challenged and pushed. It's not easy, but the impact our volunteers make on projects is unforgettable, real, and life-changing. UBELONG aims to empower people of all backgrounds to volunteer abroad so they can share their talent and make a real impact on local communities. We are famous for offering extremely affordable international volunteering opportunities and providing unmatched levels of personal support, professionalism, and community unity.
