About 2Way Development

2Way Development is a UK based social enterprise offering meaningful tailor-made volunteering placements abroad in the field of international development. We work in Africa, Asia and Latin America with over 150 partner charities operating in fields of health, education, human rights, economic development and environmental conservation.

2Way Development believes that volunteer placements should be organised individually. We organise our placements by first understating our volunteers skills, background and goals and matching those to the needs to one of our partner charities worldwide. Our team of placement advisors and managers help guide and support our volunteers so that their placements have the potential to change their lives, and the lives of others.
We have placed over 400 volunteers worldwide since 2003 and continue to watch our volunteers and partners grow as people and organisations, having a lasting impact on international development.

What makes us different from other volunteering or gap year agencies is that we treat all our volunteers individually, respecting their unique skills, background and long-term goals. We specialise in working with volunteers that have career goals as a fundamental motivation for a placement and we work hard to make sure our volunteers are placed in the best position to make a lifelong commitment to International Development. Our strength lies in our relationships with our worldwide network of fully vetted partner charities in Latin America, Africa, South and South East Asia and the Pacific. Our volunteers benefit from individual experiences, working alongside passionate and committed charities responding to development issues on the ground, on their own terms.

The concept behind the name 2Way Development is an equal exchange of skills and experiences between our volunteers and our partner charities overseas. Its important to us that the benefits for our volunteers and our partners are balanced and that whilst a volunteer develops skills on a placement, a partner charity is able to build capacity through the time and skills a volunteer can offer. With our guidance, volunteers come away from our placements knowing they have had a relevant experience to their skills and goals - a platform which our volunteers often use to facilitate life long careers in International Development. Our partners are equally able to see specific outcomes to a volunteer placement that enables them to respond to development in a truly sustainable way.
