Voluntary Work Abroad - Gap Year - Link Overseas Exchange

The Link Placements

Identification of Placements
Link’s volunteers have worked in five different countries over a fifteen year period, these being India, Sri Lanka, China, Nepal and Georgia.  Placements within these countries were identified through consultation with local partners.  Great care was taken to ensure that the placement had a real need for volunteers, and that volunteers were not taking the place of local employees or creating a financial burden.  Hosts at each placement were identified to coordinate the volunteers’ responsibilities, therefore guaranteeing that needs were identified by the local community.  Sustainability has always been at the forefront of Link’s thinking when working alongside local partners.

The Host’s Reaction
Link has always strived to ensure that the placement’s needs were met, which it is felt was achieved on the whole.  Some of the placements’ hosts give their own reaction to the benefits Link volunteers provided over the years:
