Balloon Ventures

Balloon Ventures is an award-winning social enterprise that connects young people from around the world with aspiring entrepreneurs in Kenya, Uganda and Ghana. Together these teams imagine, design and launch new businesses that tackle unemployment and improve lives.

Since launching in 2012 we have supported over 1000 entrepreneurs and invested £108,000 in 500+ small businesses. This work is already changing lives and defeating poverty through business, not aid.

Working with Balloon is your chance to gain hands on business and enterprise skills working in challenging and exciting locations. And of course through this work you will help entrepreneurs across the world to sustainably change lives.

Our current opportunities are truly once in a lifetime, and are government-funded as part of the International Citizen Service programme.

They are open to British residents aged 18-25, with Team Leader positions available for more experienced volunteers from the ages of 23-35.
