Volunteering in Asia with Projects Abroad

Care volunteer with children in Thailand

As a volunteer with Projects Abroad in Asia, you will have the opportunity to discover religions and cultures as diverse as the landscapes of this vibrant continent. Some regions have a strong Eastern identity, others have strong Western influences or even a combination of both.

Our programmes are available in many regions and cover a variety of interests. Whether you want to volunteer in Asia during your gap year, career break or during your university course, you will find a programme and a region to suit your interests.

Projects Abroad arranges placements throughout much of Asia and our programmes are incredibly diverse in terms of the type of work that you can do. You can teach English in Sri Lanka or China, care for children in Vietnam or Nepal, preserve the environment in Thailand or Cambodia and live and learn from a Nomadic family in Mongolia.

What is it like to volunteer in Asia?

While volunteering in Asia, you will also have free time, giving you the opportunity to travel and tour other regions. Whether you want to white-water raft in the foaming glacial rivers in Nepal, visit stunning Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka, or sample local dishes in Shanghai, we can guarantee you won’t be bored!

Asia is unique in that we have varied accommodation options. Most countries like Mongolia, Nepal, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines have host family accommodations. You’ll find them incredibly welcoming and they will doubtless be eager to find out all about you and your life back home. A few of our destinations in Asia have dorm style accommodations such as Cambodia, Vietnam, and China. This will give you the chance to really be a part of our extraordinary volunteer community.
