Volunteer in Asia

Experience the local cultures and diverse landscapes while volunteering in Asia

Join us on one of our volunteer projects in Asia and help to make a tangible impact in a local community. We run a range of different projects in several countries across the continent, so there’s definitely a placement to suit you.


Help protect important marine ecosystems, like coral reefs, on our Marine Conservation Projects, or work with disadvantaged children to teach vital early childhood skills. You can also do something completely different, like living with nomads in Mongolia. These are just some of the incredible volunteer opportunities in Asia available to you.


We take care of all the details of your project during your voluntary work in Asia, ensuring you have a hassle-free trip. In addition, our full time staff are there to provide 24/7 support. This means you can spend your energy on what really matters: working towards long-term goals that address the needs of local communities.

Where we are based in Asia

As a volunteer in Asia, you’ll be able to explore the different cultures and histories of the world’s largest continent. We currently work in nine different Asian countries, so there are plenty of options for you to choose from. You can read more about our internships in Asia here if you're specifically interested in gaining professional work experience.


Venture to the top of the world and do wildlife research in the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal, or dive into warm waters and do underwater survey work in Thailand. For those who love animals, you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to volunteer with pandas in China! You can also experience a more traditional way of life with nomads on the Mongolian Steppe. 


We also offer numerous opportunities to volunteer in Southeast Asia. Support children’s education at kindergartens and other childcare centres in Cambodia and the Philippines. Or teach English at disadvantaged schools in Myanmar and Vietnam.


Join us as a volunteer in Asia today, and give back to local communities while exploring different countries and cultures.
