- NICE – Neverending International Workcamps Exchange was founded in 1990. It is a non-profit making, non-governmental organisation, which has expanded rapidly over 7 years with the huge needs and possibilities for workcamps and NGO’s in East Asia. Each project has a study or discussion element to exchange ideas from different countries so you should take information relevant to the project to give examples from your country. On NICE projects, the group is often made up of half international and half national volunteers.
