Full-immersion Volunteering in Africa & Asia

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Work experience / volunteering projects in Africa (Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda) and Asia (China, India, Nepal and Thailand).

Wonderful opportunity for cultural exchange whilst working and living in the community for periods varying from five weeks to five months. The longer projects are followed by an optional period of independent group travel, all with 24/7 support from our local management teams.

Spare time:
Spare time in the evening or at weekends is spent exploring the locality with your volunteer partner.

You and your partner(s) will live with the locals as they live. You will be quite independent but be right in the community. You have your own space and ‘facilities’. It is basic (i.e. intermittent electricity) but you will quickly adjust to this simple way of life.

A Day in the Life of a Volunteer:
You will start your day early. You will work with children at primary and secondary schools helping them to read, write and speak English - and get involved with other subjects if you so wish. There is also time for sports, art, dance, drama - and anything else you want to get up to! The more you put in, the more you will get out of your project.

Our work experience / volunteer projects are a great way to improve your skills and enhance your CV - stand out from the crowd at job interviews! It is a competitive market out there - help others to help yourself!

Project dates - Jan / Feb to May / June; April / May to Augu
