Our Company

We do great stuff! In a nutshell, we provide amazing opportunities for schools through our volunteer programmes in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

  • Manage the information on the Team Member section of the website

  • Manage payment schedules – ensuring reminders are sent to all clients, ensuring payments are processed and confirmations sent, managing credit control and making phone calls to chase outstanding monies promptly
