We are a non-profit organization which helps people learn the language and talks about travel opportunities.The main mission of our organization - is to open gates of International Volunteering for Volunteers worldwide!
We are based in Russia. Our volunteers are passionate helpers, travellers and self-developers!

Currently, we have two relevant projects: 1. Language Center DoGlobal and 2. Gertrude Restaurant.

1. Language Center DoGlobal

Our center helps children and adults to realize their dream of traveling abroad to volunteer projects, internships and just travel. To achieve their goals, they have to know English at a conversational level. Our students want to break the language barrier in communication and improve the level of English. We also go to schools, orphanages. We invite volunteer participants to help us in the implementation of our ideas and objectives.

Our city is situated in the Urals. It is very beautiful area which divides our country to Europe and Asia. During the summer you can go trekking, climbing and river rafting. During winter you can go skiing and snowboarding ( we have good resorts 30-40km from Magnitogorsk).

After completing a project with us you will be granted a certificate and recommendation letter from Vhelp organization.
