Cross-Cultural Solutions

Cross-Cultural Solutions is a non-profit organization that enables volunteers to make a meaningful contribution to the community by working side-by-side with local people, while gaining a new perspective and insight into the culture and themselves.  The volunteer work is with carefully selected Partner Programs, all of which are dynamic and inspiring community-led initiatives. These include orphanages and childcare centers, schools, health clinics and hospitals, homes for the elderly, centers for people with disabilities, and other community organizations. CCS operates in Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ghana, India, Morocco, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Tanzania and Thailand.
