The Moral Mission
Outreach International supports projects that genuinely help important
environmental and humanitarian causes. These are not projects that hit the

these people and that you will receive as much as you give. You should come back
to the UK after volunteering abroad with a fresh outlook on life and new found
wisdom. Your experiences may last for just a few months - but the memories will
stay with you forever.
