Vicki Kenny in South Africa seeing giraffes up close – one more wish ticked off.

Vicki Kenny founded International Working Holidays after doing her own OE and she wanted others to have security and back up as well as support while travelling overseas. After living in South Africa for three months she returned in 2013 and was really affected by the poaching of the Rhino there. Combined with her love for animals, she then started finding volunteers who were also interested in saving wildlife and making a difference in the world, and established the volunteer arm of International Working Holidays. Since then we have sent volunteers all over the world to safe and responsible volunteer partners.

You can choose to volunteer with animals, volunteer with endangered wildlife, or even teach monks English in Nepal and of course teaching children English and lessons in kindergarten or primary school – or – have a week or two at each.
Simply book in your Free Consultation (no obligation) and we’ll set up a time to suit to talk through your options and find your dream volunteer experience – then we can help you make it happen.
