Frontier - Over 25 Years of Meaningful Development
In 2014, Frontier celebrated 25 years of dedicated volunteer projects! For over 25 years Frontier volunteers, staff and host-country counterparts have worked tirelessly in their mission to safeguard biodiversity, build sustainable livelihoods and inspire young and old to make their travel meaningful.
Established in 1989 as a non-profit conservation and development non-governmental organisation (NGO), Frontier has been an innovator in creating quality volunteer programmes across the globe. Frontier’s first projects started in Tanzania as a partnership with the WWF to create the world’s first successful multi-user marine park in a developing country, a marine park which volunteers still work in today and one that exemplifies Frontier’s aim of creating long lasting and sustainable results.
Since then, Frontier has grown to operate over 400 capacity building conservation, community and adventure projects in over 70 countries spanning 5 continents. Over the past two and a half decades, Frontier has helped volunteers of more than 30 nationalities take part in projects all around the world, making Frontier a truly international organisation with a global impact.
