Volunteer since


I understand French well and my spoken is fair. My mandarin used to be pretty good but a little rusty now. I understand some Spanish but would like to learn more.

About me

Working for an NGO suits me perfectly. It appeals to my work in IT, the opportunity to give back, and the opportunity to travel. I have been very fortunate with with the chances I have gotten in my life. I enjoy team sports, being social, trying new things, scuba diving, outdoor activities and broadening my horizons. My dates are quite flexible to travel.

Preferred location

I am an Irish girl who has already lived in Australia, China, Malaysia, France and the US. I live and work in Amsterdam in the IT field now and have 30 days leave each year. I am really open to location but especially interested in Africa, South America and Central America for volunteering. I am a pleasant, hard working and honest person. A friend recommended this website and I look forward to what the opportunities will bring. I have flexibility in my dates to travel and would ideally like two week periods. Thanks Pat


I speak some Mandarin, French and am learning Dutch. I love meeting new people and am easy going. I have worked professionally in IT for all of my career but that included a lot of customer interaction, coaching, and working with teams. For part time jobs when I was in university I did various jobs like waitressing, barwork, shop assistant, welcome hostess, hotel employee, food preparation, and I picked up lots of skills. I work for an NGO now and love my job very much!
