Perched on the hillsides overlooking the Rio Tejo, and in close proximity to gorgeous Souther-European beachs,  Portugal's capital city is a heady mix of ancient ruins, eccentric street life, and colonial cathedrals.  Lisbon is a step into Europe with a laid-back vibe.  




You will live in 2-3 bedroom apartments with private rooms. You have access to a workspace with high-speed internet. All of our apartments also have high-speed internet, and backup internet. 

Support & Convenience

VWI staff will be available throughout the program, beginning before participants depart for Southeast Asia to assist with booking flights, information on visas, vaccinations, etc. In country, staff is available to support for any need.


You will live, work and travel with a group of diverse remote professionals. Each week, in a group dinner participants have a chance to try a new local flavor, and get to know other participants in the program. We’ll discuss our experiences from the week and invite guests from the community to join us.  

Partner Placement

We will match you with a personalized skills-based volunteer opportunity.  We match our Venturers with a project based on the needs of our organizations as well as the skills and interests of each participant.  We will also coordinate visits to various partner sites, so that you will also have the opportunity to view the work of your peers. 

Cultural Immersion

VWI is your cultural insider. We'll help you dig deeper into the local culture by providing you access to the best local events and by offering weekend trips for the whole group. Together we will travel the beautiful country of Portugal. You will also have the opportunity to learn Portuguese through immersion or through Portuguese lessons arranged by VWI with a local tutor.
