Why Choose Projects Abroad?
Founded in 1992 Projects Abroad operates in 30 developing countries providing support to over 1000 local initiatives through the people-power of our volunteers. Each year we make it possible for thousands of volunteers from all walks of life to take the opportunity to make a contribution to a community and foster cultural exchange and understanding.
In each community we employ full time local staff to ensure that our volunteers work on worthwhile local programmes and that they are well supported and safe.
Of course there are a number of organisations which offer similar programmes to us and we are often asked what sets us apart. Here are some of the factors that set Projects Abroad apart from other volunteer organisations and that we feel are important to consider when contemplating such a significant adventure.
