IFRE is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization based in Dallas, Texas, USA. They founded IFRE’s volunteering abroad program in 2005 after realizing the need for safe and affordable volunteer abroad programs. So far, nearly 3000 volunteers have participated in their meaningful volunteer programs in Asia, Africa and Latin America. IFRE is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and has multiple offices with 100+ experienced field employees throughout the 18 developing countries we support in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
IFRE was officially established in 2005, but it was not until 2006 that they began looking abroad – traveling to 12 different countries, researching potential service projects and screening potential and experienced coordinators. They initially selected Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Ghana, India, Kenya, Nepal, Peru, South Africa, Tanzania and Thailand as their volunteer abroad program destinations.
IFRE is proud of all of the coordinators' achievements over the years. Nearly all IFRE volunteers praised their coordinators and appreciated the help and support they received to make their experience amazing and worthwhile.
