Can I bring gifts for the local people?

You are here:

We are always amazed at the generous hearts of those who come to work with us. Many participants bring donations with them in hopes of being able to give them directly to those they meet on their trip. After years of working in various communities and countries, we have unfortunately seen this create many problems.
Instead, we want to inform and inspire our volunteers with the many valuable ways that Live Different already has in place to enable them them to make a contribution to the communities we work in.  Learn more about how Live Different handles aid and donations.
