Tuk Tuk Cartel is an Unconventional NGO that caters to adventurist who want to go to out of the ordinary volunteer destinations.
Founded in June 2016 by Technology Consultant Alain Buffing with rebellious spirit and a bold objective: To identify innovative projects in underdeveloped regions at the far corners of the world that truly kick ass. Once on our radar we want to empower these projects to extend their impact, and we do so by connecting them to adventurous volunteers, who strive to disrupt the status quo and improve society.
We engage a group of volunteers in an intense two-week trip in an Exotic location abroad that covers local construction activities, educational workshop with the locals and adventurous activities. In 2016, volunteers from 7 countries worldwide have participated.
Each trip is led by our trained project managers, who engage with volunteers in individual and group activities. We generally have a ratio of one project manager for every five volunteers. During the trip, volunteers will be stimulated to come out of their comfort zone, challenge the ordinary and leave something behind.
The Fundraising commit for the program is €1,000. Attending volunteers include corporate employees, freelancers, independent professionals and entrepreneurs.
