Operators Without Borders makes a
lasting difference in the developing nations

Operators Without Borders is a registered non-profit organization of certified Operators who help their counterparts . At present we are offering services to Caribbean counties but are open to expanding to other areas of the world that need our help.

More junior certified Operators will be called upon when we are asked to assist post-disaster. Senior certified Operators will be assigned according to the needs of the requesting utility. In future we see a need for certified Operators who have experience training or who speak other languages such as French or Spanish.

There is no cost to volunteering. Airfares, accommodation, and meals costs are covered. All we need is your time, a clean bill of health, and adequate travel insurance. The assignments generally consist of two weeks on the ground in the assigned country.

Once we receive your information we will add your name to the database and confirm receipt.
