Behind the scenes with
The Mighty Roar
We're not different, we're unique
Meet the team behind The Mighty Roar and the reason we're here!
We are so passionate about what we do, why would we not be? We get to travel this amazing world, make great friendships, see breathtaking places, make a positive change within local communities and help conserve / protect animals – what other
job way of life offers that?
It would not be right if you did not get the opportunity to experience this too…that’s why we started The Mighty Roar.
There are many volunteering organisations that we are sure you will come across over the next few days. They all say they “are different” and we are sure they are. Well, we don’t just like to follow the herd, we say we are The Mighty Roar.
This is not a 9 to 5 job for us. You will regularly find us available to answer your questions outside of the “normal” hours, be that 06:30 on a Monday morning or 20:00 on a Sunday evening as everyone else settles down to watch some TV. We also make it easy. You can contact us through our online chat on our website, by email, text, social media or the good old-fashioned telephone.
We aim to make all of our volunteering programmes as affordable and accessible as possible, allowing this once in a lifetime opportunity to all travellers. If you really want, we will even allow you to compare our pricing with other organisations, charities and not-for-profits where you will find us significantly cheaper.
How can we do this I hear you ask? Well, it’s pretty simple really! We do not need big fancy offices, lots of employees or massive monthly overheads. Our small family team work from our cosy home office looking out across the fields, where the rabbits jump in and out of the corn growing and the little owls peep in through the windows – we cannot think of anywhere better to base ourselves at!
Over the past couple of years, we have hosted many volunteers and have already made such a big impact around the world where our programmes are established. Here's just a few things you should know about us:
We are committed to ethical conservation
We started The Mighty Roar because we wanted to make a difference to the conservation of the wildlife around the world. All of our projects only offer true conservation practices to make a positive impact in protecting these amazing animals.
All of our community programmes are sustainable
Not only do our volunteer programmes directly help within the local community, but we ensure that all tasks aid to the local economy, respect all cultures and support and develop the local infrastructure.
We really know what we’re talking about
All of our team have visited each and every programme we offer so we can truly tell you what to expect. We have stayed in the accommodation, carried out all volunteering tasks, tasted the meals and travelled the nearby areas. Not only does this allow us to answer any of your questions, but we can also ensure that everything is enjoyable and most importantly safe.
We are here if you need us
For your peace of mind, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Between our UK office and our in-house teams, we are always on-hand to support you.
You are not just another number
We like to get to know all of our volunteers and we actively go out of our way to make your volunteering trip truly unique and special to you. Whether that is organising a must-do trip, paying for your gym membership, arranging that Pizza Hut delivery or celebrating your birthday, you can be sure we care about you.
We want you to have a great time
Why wouldn’t we? We go out of our way to make sure you and other volunteers have the best time of your lives. The fastest and most efficient way for us to grow and spread the word about our programmes is by YOU. Reviews are key to our success and that’s why we are so proud of our 5 out of 5 star rating.
So, do something different and special on your gap year or when you next go abroad. Whether you want to help protect the elephants in Sri Lanka, swim with sharks in South Africa, release baby turtles in Costa Rica or teach in Cambodia, we have the perfect experience waiting for you.
