5 reasons to volunteer on Curaçao

5 reasons for volunteering on Curacao

Do you have a gap year or have you finished your studies and would you like to mean something to Curaçao? How good to hear! There are plenty of opportunities to do volunteer work on Curaçao. For example, you can work with animals or with people. Curaçao is a sunny island, but unfortunately you also see more poverty here and these people could really use your help! We have collected five important reasons why you should do volunteer work in Curaçao. 

1- Curaçao can really use your help. 

You cannot compare Curaçao with the Netherlands when it comes to a social safety net. You do not have a social assistance benefit here that you can use to pay for a house, etc. Here it comes down to your fellow man and that is what makes Curaçao so beautiful and pleasant. People who are ready for each other and with helping a family to collect clothes make up for their day completely. Doing volunteer work on Curaçao does not have to be a financial gift, but think of helping in housekeeping or supporting fun neighborhood activities. You can expect a lot in appreciation and love from the population. 

2- It is good for your own development. 

Maybe you don't learn much from volunteering in terms of theory, but you do develop yourself to the max. You learn to deal with other people and you can also look at life from a different angle. Doing volunteer work on Curaçao demands a lot from yourself. A bit of empathy, but also the obligation not to take everything home with you. You ask a lot of yourself what you will carry with you for the rest of your life. 

3- To gain work experience.

During or after your studies you gain work experience by doing volunteer work on Curaçao in your own field of study or you gain experience that adds something extra to your studies (for example management experience). This gives you an edge over others who can provide the same papers but have no work experience.

4- To change the world.

As a volunteer you are the change that you want to see in the world. Together with a handful of friends or like-minded, you can set up initiatives that make a difference. That gives an enormous amount of freedom: with a little imagination you can easily achieve endless things. 

5- Because volunteering on Curaçao is just fun!

Perhaps the most important reason is that it's just fun. There are so many places here where you can volunteer. Also think of the street animals that could really use your help. There are even feeding projects on Curaçao where volunteers feed stray dogs in various places on Curaçao. In this way you become one with the community, but in the meantime you also help those sweet dogs that walk around here. Who knows, you might adopt a dog!

Not all accommodations on Curaçao have standard linen. That is why we offer this service. That saves a lot of space in your suitcase ;-) 

The linen consists of a pillow, bottom sheet and duvet cover. On Curaçao we do not sleep under blankets because of the heat. No towels are included. 

If you use our pick-up service, you will receive your linen directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.  


Calling each other on Curaçao is very expensive. That is why a local SIM card is definitely recommended. 

You put this SIM card in your phone, but you keep your normal WhatsApp number. This way you can call and app with the home front & friends via WhatsApp as you are used to.

You call each other on Curaçao at the local rate with your new local telephone number.

If you have a pick-up service, you will receive your SIM card directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.
