RCDP international – New Hope volunteers
In October 1, 2013, New Hope Volunteers entered into a partnership agreement with RCDP international volunteer. Under this agreement, New Hope Volunteers is now a part of RCDP Volunteers.RCDP is one of the World's most successful volunteer abroad organizations based in Kathmandu, Nepal. RCDP has been offering volunteer placements for over 15 years and successfully organized more than 12,000 volunteer placements so far. RCDP has also funded countless projects to build schools and orphanages. Since both RCDP and New Hope Volunteers believe in offering quality volunteer programs at a very affordable program fee, this partnership will benefit both the organizations, and in return our volunteers will benefit the most.
What this partnership will ensure:
The Most Affordable Program Fee
New Hope Volunteers and RCDP International have formed a joint monitoring team that makes field visits, and monitors the progress of the projects and the work carried out by our volunteers. Before offering any new project to the volunteers, the monitoring team also conducts extensive field evaluations and makes sure the project will follow our strict guidelines. This setup also ensures both organizations will spend less time, less energy and even less funds on researching for meaningful projects in safe and secure destinations. This is the reason why we are offering volunteer programs that are 7 times more affordable than our competitors.
Our Family of Staff Members
New Hope Volunteers and RCDP International work with same country coordinators, staffs and local grassroots organizations all over the world. This setup ensures that our staffs will always be motivated to help volunteers, and we will maintain the professionalism required to give volunteers life changing experience. This sharing of resources also ensures we keep the cost very low, and makes us possible to offer Most Affordable Program Fees. Our country coordinators, who are part of the two organizations, play very important roles. The coordinators organize placements for the volunteer, arrange for airport pickups and ensure that volunteers are happy and satisfied during the project. All our coordinators have many years of experience running the programs. They are also socially respected in the community and have excellent communications skills.
Quality Time while Volunteering
The joint monitoring team of New Hope and RCDP International lays the founding stones of very successful volunteer projects by conducting extensive researches, surveys, field visits and interviews. The team ensures that in all destinations our volunteers will be:
- warmly welcomed
- will feel safe and secure
- can immerse in fascinating local culture
- work alongside local people in volunteer projects that will benefit the local community
- and return home with memories they can treasure for the rest of their lives
The RCDP-New Hope Partnership will guarantee all this.
Complete volunteer experience
New Hope and RCDP International also organizes travel/tour programs and a week-long language and cultural programs, 2 weeks in the case of Nepal. Our programs can now be organized in three phases.
Our volunteers can now start their stay with a language and culture immersion program. This program will give our volunteers excellent opportunity to immerse in local culture, learn local language, culture and history. The program will give our volunteers confidence to successfully complete their volunteer programs.
You will work in projects that are designed and implemented by the local community to help them. Our volunteers will be helped by local staffs, and also experience warm appreciate for the work you have done.
After successfully volunteering work, you can then pamper yourself by concluding your program with a tour/travel or a safari program to see the best of what the country has to offer. Our staffs will seamlessly coordinate these activities and make it a truly life changing experience.
In recent years, volunteering abroad has emerged as a new area of meaningful travel. Many college students, seniors, and people from every walk of life are joining volunteer abroad programs worldwide to serve humanity and to experience unique cultures in different way. The trend of volunteer abroad is likely to rise in coming years. This trend has created business opportunities for many ‘for profit and not profit organizations’. Currently, there are more than 500 organizations operating volunteer abroad program from USA and UK alone. Realizing this market opportunities, new companies have also recently emerged in Australia, New Zealand, and other countries.
Truth of volunteer abroad companies based in USA, UK, New Zealand, Australia
Even though there are hundreds of volunteer abroad organizations in the USA, UK, New Zealand, and Australia, most of these companies work with local volunteer organizations (which you can find easily with internet search) or they hire local coordinators like us to run the programs. Most of the USA, UK, New Zealand and Australia companies charge as high as $2,500 for 2 weeks volunteer program. And nearly 80% of your money (program fee) will go towards covering their expenses, like staff salary, advertisement, making colorful brochures, and running other marketing expenses. Only 10-20% of the money reaches host families and projects that deserve the most. We concluded this after working with many USA, UK, New Zealand and Australia based companies for many years. Therefore, we developed a world’s most affordable volunteer organization where:
- You will be assisted and guided throughout the project by experienced coordinators, stay in host families that have been carefully screen, and work in projects that are extremely meaningful to the volunteers and grassroots communities.
- There won't be any difference in the quality, services and safety between leading US, UK, and New Zealand companies and our programs as we have been running volunteer abroad program for last 10 years and we have focused on providing volunteers with unforgettable experience in a very safe and friendly environment.
- You will pay as low as $7 per day to cover your room/food directly to host families and projects. Except our registration fee of $269 (which we need to advertise in Google and cover our expenses), we can guarantee you that 100% of your money is used for you.
