Tomo Hi tddong, sorry about the delayed response! I thought I responded but I guess it never got posted... It is with Volunteer Eco Students Abroad. If you would like more information feel free to view their website or I can answer what I know. www.vesabroad.com I hope this helps, Tomo

backpackingoz Hi there, I´ve checked out the site and more than a charity it looks to me like a very lucrative business. Pity :(

Tomo Hi Backpackingoz... bummer you think so, as I am the Director of International Programs and we have helped countless families around the Amazon and Fiji in recent years, I am not sure where you are getting "lucrative business" from unless you are one of those people who believe that because you are donating your time, that that should be enough... where do you think supplies come from? Food? Water? Boat rides to and from sites? the $10,000 water catchments that we install? If you could please let us know if you find another organization which offers a "cheaper" version of our voluntour program, we would be ever so grateful for you to pass this info on, as after extensive research, we have been proven to actually be the MOST affordable voluntour option in both North America and Austrlalasia.
Sincerely,
Shona Luciani

backpackingoz I have my ticket!! I´ll be starting my trip from Perth instead of Darwin (and travelling all the way around Australia to finish up in Sydney around Xmas time. I´ll be heading to Asia in January to do some travelling, meditation and voluntary work with children. If someone wants to join me I´d love to have some company specially at the beggining of the adventure.

comehikewithmike "...then Asia no time limit" - you should definitely consider this trip http://globetrooper.com/the-great-circular-indian-railway-challenge-2011. Lots of people (maybe 15 to 25) are planning to go. Should be freakin' amazing.
