Every year, SAFAD opens an opportunity for graduates to volunteer on placements with local partners, NGOs or local organisations across the world. SAFAD supports volunteers during their placement with operational and financial support. We aim to cover expenses such as air tickets, accommodation, visa, food, vaccinations, insurance and more. These placements offer an excellent opportunity to gain valuable professional, hands-on experience whilst supporting social and environmental development in the local communities where we work.
If you are a Cranfield student and have the necessary skills and experience and are interested in a volunteer placement please get in touch.

Please note, SAFAD is a charity that depends on public and charitable donations; therefore, some projects are dependent on the charity fundraising outcomes. We hope to, but cannot guarantee at this stage that all projects advertised for the placements will proceed. If you have any questions, please refer to the FAQs on the SAFAD website or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
