The Volunteer is a project that looks to work and volunteer with charities doing specialized projects overseas focusing on a selection of humanitarian issues. The main objective is to raise awareness and funding for the charity while also giving an insight into the life of a volunteer.
The Volunteer aims to televise the experience of volunteering as part of a series aimed at documenting and highlighting the efforts of various charities overseas often operating in difficult and dangerous circumstances.
The Volunteer series will capture the emotions, cultural differences and challenges attached to volunteering on a project overseas while looking to inspire ordinary people to make a difference.
The Volunteer is presented and founded by Hugo Chittenden who having volunteered in Africa decided to change his life and dedicate himself to helping raise awareness and funding for charities and projects overseas.
Hugo Chittenden - Hugo was educated in the UK and graduated in modern languages from Trinity College Dublin in 1999. Since leaving university Hugo has lived and worked in Australia, Europe and Latin America. His passion for travel, different cultures and languages helped shape his commercial interests overseas. In 2008 Hugo faced his own illness which was to change the course of his life. He sold his property business in Central America and began volunteering in Africa for a charity working with orphans in the slums of Nairobi. The experience deeply moved him and he is now dedicating himself to producing documentaries outlining the fundraising, volunteering and project building process of charities overseas. Hugo produced his first documentary in September 2009. Hugo lives in London where he teaches French and Spanish while focusing on his new series of documentaries called The Volunteer.
Volunteering is something that everyone adheres to and yet something that is spoken about as a distant dream rather than an actuality.
The Volunteer aims to highlight the benefits of volunteering while outlining the highs and lows one can expect as a volunteer overseas, so as to educate and inspire those who may like to try something different.
The Volunteer has partnered up with UK volunteering organizations to facilitate the process of volunteering overseas.
