It all began 500 years ago. Yes, you read that right. 500 years ago, we set sail in search of new worlds, and that spirit of discovery is still part of us. Today, albeit in a completely different way, we are going to take 12 wonderful people from opposite parts of the globe on an adventure through 30 countries, for a whole year. This is a unique experience. One in which each individual, though working as part of a team, will bring their own unique insight to this yet to be written story.The lucky 12 will share with a worldwide audience their experiences in social and environmental work, and their interaction with local organizations.You, on the other side of the screen, will get to watch as they explore incomparable cultural landmarks and wander off the beaten track. If 500 years ago we discovered the world, our aim now is to preserve it as best we can, by raising awareness of the world's social and cultural diversity, by contributing to global NGOs and with hands-on-involvement with local organizations. Get ready for this engrossing and once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Our goals are: "to promote social responsibility through direct donations to global NGOs and by hands-on involvement with local organizations; to offer participants a once-in-a-lifetime experience; and to raise awareness of the world's social and cultural diversity."How does World Life Experience work?
1 YEAR, 12 PEOPLE, 30 DESTINATIONS.
World life experience will send 12 wonderful people from various parts of the globe on a journey to 30 countries on an immersive experience to collaborate with local social action organizations and discover different ways of life. Throughout their travels, they will share the insights they gain from their experience on social media. WLE will cover all expenses, and participants will receive 24/7 support, lodging and food, as well as a salary.
A UNIQUE, IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE.
This multicultural group with their multiplicity of skills and diverse perspectives will spend 10 days in each of the 30 cities working 4 to 5 days within a local organization and 5 to 6 days on cultural, entertainment, and local activities. The participants will work as a group yet the insights they share will be personal.
We are funded through an Application Fee, Partnerships and Sponsors.
The Application Fee of 9€ and is only paid once. Precisely 2.5€ of this amount is donated directly to one of the NGOs associated with World Life Experience - candidates can choose which NGO sector receives their donation.
IT IS A WIN/WIN SITUATION.
World Life Experience is a project open to the world. Our hope and expectation is to create and foster a conscious community that wants to experience new things and have a positive impact on the world. One of our main goals is to bring together both public and private organizations to share their work, beliefs and ideas throughout the world.
As One Hand Gives:

The Other One Gets:
We will work in partnership with the institutions, brands and organizations who help us locally to provide accommodation, meals, adventures, transportation, experiences, financing, etc, to promote anything that reflects their core-business.
