About Us

O2E is a not-for-profit organisation which provides resources and assistance to organisations for the well-being of animals and the environment. We pride ourselves on being ethically responsible for taking into consideration, first and foremost, animal welfare and environmental responsibility.

O2E believes there are standards that should be upheld when organisations place candidates within the voluntary sector. Since the main purpose of providing volunteers within projects is to provide much-needed funding and resources that are otherwise difficult to come by, it is essential that the main beneficiaries of the volunteers' presence and financial contribution is to the project itself. 



  • Promote the ethical treatment and natural living ecology of all animals
  • Promote environmental sustainability and accountability for our impact on the environment.
  • Expose and educate volunteers to the plight of animals ill-affected by conflict or interaction with man, encouraging them to take action and find solutions to these global issues.
  • Through Oceans 2 Earth Foundation, O2E supports projects and grassroots organisations through fundraising and campaign initiatives.
