Introduction to CPT

Are you looking for an unusual holiday experience? Do you want to have fun and help people, too? With Community Project travel (CPT) holidays, you can do both. The CPT organisation takes volunteers to exotic places around the world and gives them important community projects to do.

Nepal

Right now, CPT volunteers are working on projects in Nepal, Kenya and Australia. Some volunteers in Nepal are painting a new medical centre and a school. Others are making new furniture for these buildings. CPT also takes volunteers to Nepal on trips to the forests and villages in the area.

Kenia

In Kenia, CPT volunteers are planting vegetables and fruit trees in school gardens right now. Sometimes, these volunteers go on safari trips to the Rift Valley and Lake Nakuru National Park to see the wild animals.

The CPT project in Australia helps the environment. Volunteers there are working in Arnhem Land with the local Yolngu Aboriginal people at the moment. They are cleaning the beaches and helping sea animals.

Conclusion on the CPT project

CPT volunteers have a perfect holiday. They do important work and they also visit fantastic places.
