About Help International

The mission of HELP International is to empower people to fight global poverty through sustainable, life-changing development programs. Our unique model allows college-aged volunteers, interns, and young professionals to contribute and catalyze the efforts of local partners on the ground. HELP International aims to assist relatively inexperienced and mostly academically trained participants to become social entrepreneurs who understand the complexities of poverty and play an active role in efforts to improve the quality of life of some of the most vulnerable populations in the world.

“I loved the opportunity to work with refugees on the ground in Greece. I was able to do developmental work in a refugee camp on the island closest to Turkey, where most of the boats have been landing. Working there was amazing. I met beautiful people from all over the world who are fleeing war and persecution. I had the privilege of hearing hundreds of stories and teaching english classes. My volunteer organization also conducted various activities in which we were able to give many refugees a break from the tense environment in the camp. We played football, went swimming, etc. I chose such a great internship and I was able to put my peace building degree to good use as I taught workshops and came to a better understanding of the refugee crisis and the violence and conflict along with it. ”
