Get involved as a volunteer overseas!

Our grassroots community organizations develop a close communication with our volunteers overseas to format their work plans and get them really involved with their projects even before they arrive. With the right preparation, your volunteer experience will be rewarding and enjoyable.   Volunteers overseas work in projects developed and operated by a local partner organization and their respective community councils. Volunteer opportunities range from teaching English, Childcare and Orphanage projects to exciting animal conservation volunteer programs in South Africa.   Our highly affordable volunteer abroad programs are very well planned and clear about the benefits to all parts involved.   Local people that put their souls into their projects run our volunteer overseas programs. Each project coordinator and team workers sends us reports measuring their quantitative and qualitative results of the volunteer abroad programs.   Cheap Asia volunteer programs are available in Nepal, where you can teach English in a Buddhist monastery, or in Thailand, where you can volunteer with elephants in Surin.
