Welcome to Voolla! My name is Stephanie Downs, and I am the founder and “Chief Volunteer” at Voolla. I am passionate about all volunteering, but my favorite kind is volunteer travel. It brings together my two favorite hobbies — travel and giving back.

I have traveled to over 40 countries now – some for work, some for fun, but through all looking for ways to give back. Whether I am on an arranged volunteer vacation or just going about my daily tasks on a business trip, I have a crazy karma that brings me across animals in distress.

I have countless stories and amazing memories from my travels. I want to share this world with you and inspire you to get involved. I hope you enjoy the ride!
