General Info

DUCK Expeditions offer Durham students the journey of a lifetime - a journey of cultural discovery and personal development, as well as contributing to DUCK’s charitable legacy in communities all over the globe.

Entirely student-run, DUCK Expeditions are offering you the opportunity to volunteer and travel in one of ten stunning destinations around the world next summer, in a team of 8-12 Durham students. Whether caring for rescued elephants in Thailand, teaching kids in Cambodia, running extra-curricular for street kids in Peru, bonding with orang-utans in Borneo or climbing Kilimanjaro - there’s many more opportunities available and there really is something for everyone. For summer 2018, we’re adding two new and exciting expeditions: to Tanzania and to Nepal, including a trek through the Himalayas. A once in a lifetime experience, wouldn’t you love to join in, and give both time and money to great international causes?

THE PROJECT

Our teams volunteer for 3 or 4 weeks working with small NGOs or partner projects. Many of these only exist due to previous DUCK funding.

Projects fall into three broad categories, with most expeditions a combination of two: kids, animals, building construction/renovation. In addition to Kili, 3 expeditions feature treks - Peru to Machu Picchu, Nepal through the Himalayas, and Borneo up Mt Kinabalu.

Each participant donates up to £1000 to selected charities, including the Project itself

THE DESTINATI

ON

Projects are usually off the beaten tourist track allowing participants gain a unique and eye-opening insight into these countries - beyond the tourist screen. Our teams can immerse themselves and discover so much about unfamiliar cultures, as well as contribute to the local communities.

It’s eye-opening, the polar opposite to the Durham bubble, but it’s also enticing.

Each team then has at least one week of travel, to make the most of their exotic destination!
