Story

As a result of the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine which began on the 24th February ’22, at least 5 million Ukrainian refugees are predicted to be forced to seek refuge in neighbouring countries.

As a support organisation, Indigo is ideally positioned to place volunteers and support local as well as international grassroots NGOs in their response to this crisis. We have been working with displaced people for the last 6 years and have gained extensive expertise which we will use to deliver vital assistance to refugees at the Ukrainian border.

We are raising funds so that we can:

1. Support our team in carrying out field work at the Ukrainian border, gathering the information they need to coordinate efforts and support grassroots initiatives.

2. Recruit an additional Volunteer Coordinator to help deal with our significantly increased workload.

3. Increase our network reach and onboard new partners in need of our support across the Ukrainian borders.

Founded in 2012, Indigo Volunteers is a UK charity with a global team that matches volunteers from all over the world with charities supporting refugees and displaced people across Europe. Our mission is to ensure that volunteers go where they are really needed, and that the receiving charities have the resources and connections to provide vital assistance to refugees.

Indigo Volunteers

Indigo Volunteers is a charity that recruits volunteers and connects them with humanitarian projects across the globe. We provide a straightforward, fee-free matchmaking service, placing people where they are needed most. On our travels we have found that small grassroots organisations often do not have the time or resources to find volunteers that keep their projects running. Conversely, people who want to volunteer often don’t know where to start, and find it difficult to identify a legitimate project where their talents are really needed. Our aim is to remove these hurdles and create the connections that enable charities to keep going and focus on their objectives. Indigo was founded to challenge the exploitative practices of for-profit volunteering agencies that charge extortionate fees and seem primarily concerned with selling exotic experiences, rather than considering their actual impact. We want to ensure that volunteering remains true to its core humanitarian purpose: we believe in people helping people, and partner with grassroots charities that are positively dedicated to support communities coping with poverty, displacement and inequality.
