Sun sHADe Volunteers (Maldives) provide opportunities for responsible and meaningful working holidays in one of the most beautiful places in the world: The Maldives!
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.
Sun sHADe Volunteers is entirely led by Huvadhoo Aid (HAD), an NGO based in Huvadhoo Atoll working to build a just, fair and sustainable society, in which everybody enjoys human rights and freedom to a life of dignity, under the theme of “friendship, peace and progress”. Its strategy is to build a stronger society for social, economic and environmental justice, driven by people living in rural communities and exclusion. Huvadhoo Aid received the President's Award for Courage in 2007, recognizing the activities and programs of the Huvadhoo Aid.
