Sun sHADe Volunteers (Maldives) provide opportunities for responsible and meaningful working holidays in one of the most beautiful places in the world: The Maldives!

Sun sHADe Volunteers is entirely led by Huvadhoo Aid (HAD), a non-governmental, youth organization located in Huvadhoo Atoll. Sun sHADe Volunteers exists to constantly develop various parts of the rural community in order to attain basic needs, protect the environment and make island life even more worth living. Our fields of action include education, community development, medical placements, sports placements, cultural exchange and environmental conservation – and all that with an international twist. We work with each volunteer to design a program that is best suited to their skill level and interest while filling a need in the community.

Fun and enjoyment are part of the experience of course! During their stay, volunteers have plenty of time to enjoy the island life and on the weekends they can enjoy snorkeling and exploring the amazing coral reefs, try surfing and wakeboarding, have private island picnics, go fishing and relax on the pristine beaches.

At the same time we want our volunteers to benefit from their stay on our island as well. Therefore we welcome them warmly and introduce them to our culture. They shall have the experience of their lifetime as our thanks for their engagement towards the community.
