indigo Volunteers is a charity that connects volunteers with humanitarian projects around the globe as a fee-free service. On our travels we have found that many small grassroots organisations do not have the time or network to find volunteers that keep their projects running. Conversely, we have found that people who want to volunteer often fit it difficult to identify projects that need their specific skills and meet their values.
By matching the right volunteers to the right projects, Indigo helps humanitarians focus on their objectives rather than spending precious time navigating the confusing and increasingly commercialised aid sector. We mainly work with smaller grassroots organisations, where humans like you and me support other humans coping with poverty, displacement and inequality. Besides our matchmaking efforts, we support projects in setting up good volunteer practices whilst also preparing volunteers themselves for the often challenging tasks that lie ahead.
Indigo works with projects around the globe, currently with a focus on teams working alongside the European refugee route in Greece, Bosnia and Serbia, where urgent help is needed.
