SANDEMANs Community Events


At SANDEMANs, we don’t think of ourselves as a multi-national company, but instead as 20 local businesses that all work together. In each SANDEMANs city, we have local staff, we work with local guides, we support local businesses and we pay local taxes.

So of course, it makes sense that we want to create events to help travelers give back to local communities. Across the SANDEMANs network, we create events where we invite visitors to dedicate one hour of their holiday to helping to give back, and in exchange, we give them a free ticket to one of our paid tours. It might be an hour collecting litter, or sorting donated clothes for the needy, but it’s always something easy to do, with no special training (or clothing!) required.

If you want to help us give back to local communities, have a look at our upcoming events to see where we’ll be next. We’d love to have you join in!


We’re always looking for ways to bring travelers and locals together, to leave a positive impact on the cities and communities we call home. If you have a special project we can help with, please get in touch! We’d love to talk to you about whether we can help to make your project a reality.

We look to organize events that are easy for travelers to volunteer with; events that don’t require special training or clothing, and that anywhere from 10 to 100 people can make a meaningful contribution to over the course of a few hours. This might be helping to clean a local park or beach, doing some work in a community garden, helping to sort donated clothing, taking elderly citizens on excursions, and much, much more. If a team of SANDEMANs staff, guests and guide partners can help, we’d love to get involved!

If you are based in or near one of our 20 cities, and have a special project you need volunteers for, please contact us at so that we can schedule a call with you to see if we can help. Alternatively, if you would like to join in and help at one of our existing community events, keep an eye on this page for all upcoming activities.
