Workaway.info is a site set up to promote fair exchange between budget travellers, language learners or culture seekers and families, individuals or organizations who are looking for help with a range of varied and interesting activities.
Our philosophy is simple:
A few hours honest help per day in exchange for food and accommodation and an opportunity to learn about the local lifestyle and community, with friendly hosts in varying situations and surroundings.
Our aims are:
- To promote cultural understanding between different peoples and lands throughout the world.
- To enable people travelling on a limited budget to fully appreciate living and working in a foreign environment.
- To promote the exchange between people from different nationalities, and give a chance for volunteers to contribute to a cause.
- To enable language learners to experience different countries and immerse themselves in their target language whilst living abroad.
- To give opportunity to projects around the world to receive support form skilled volunteers and have a real and immediate impact on their projects
