Institute for Field Research Expeditions (IFRE), is a non profit organization. Our parent company is registered as Global Future Institute (GFI) in Louisiana. The main goal of IFRE is to carry out authentic field research programs on ecology, environment, wildlife, archeology and other areas affecting global communities.

The secondary objective of IFRE is to offer affordable and high quality volunteer abroad and internship abroad programs. In collaboration with local organizations, IFRE presently offers volunteer abroad programs in Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, China, Thailand, Peru, Costa Rica, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania. Our volunteer abroad programs are focused on working in orphanages, teaching English, health projects and conservation efforts.

IFRE History:

IFRE was started in 2005 after realizing the need for volunteers' help in developing countries. Afford ability and quality are two core components of IFRE's volunteer abroad programs. Before starting our programs, we had visited many developing countries where we developed many relationships with local orphanages, schools, NGO, governments and local people.

Presently, IFRE runs its volunteer program in Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, China, Thailand, Peru, Costa Rica, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania. We are in a process to expand our program to many other developing countries where the help of volunteers are greatly needed. In 2006, we sent 226 volunteers abroad! Many volunteers are planning a trip with IFRE up through spring of 2008.

Mission:

The mission of M17917 is to offer the most affordable as well as the highest quality volunteer and humanitarian abroad experiences – enabling us to make a contribution for all of humanity in its quest to make the world a better place. Through our volunteer and humanitarian trips abroad, we aim to spread love and compassion worldwide while improving the lives of destitute children and less-fortunate communities. We at IFRE also seek sustainable solutions in the fields of education, health care, conservation efforts and development issues through international volunteering.

Partners and Coordinators:

IFRE has a strong team of experienced international coordinators who run a successful and effective volunteer abroad program. Most of our coordinators run local level organizations and work hard to address local issues affecting the life of their communities. In addition to our international coordinators, we also work directly with local schools, orphanages, development agencies and community organizations. We always strive to ensure that each program meets the high standards of quality as expected and deserved by our volunteers.
