The aim of these placements is to harness the expertise of skilled volunteers, matching you to a project where you can have the greatest impact. Working alongside local staff, you will be able to share your knowledge and upskill others, while working towards our long-term sustainable goals in-country.

We currently offer professional projects in various destinations across the developing world. You can choose to go for as long as you’d like, although some projects have a set minimum duration. You can also choose the dates that suit you.

What type of volunteer work can I do?

The list below is simply a selection of some of the popular options that previous volunteers have taken part in. It is certainly not an exhaustive list of all our options! From Micro-finance and Law, to Medicine and Archaeology, there is a wide scope for individuals with different qualifications and abilities to get involved.

Each project has specific requirements regarding qualifications. However, any related experience you may have will also be taken into consideration when you apply.

If you have a particular skill or qualification and are keen to put it to use then please contact us, and we will do our best to match you with a placement that suits your skills and interests.

If you are not a trained professional, you can still take part in a regular volunteer project with us.
