Interested in touring a foreign country? Want to use your time effectively by helping people or communities that could benefit from your skills? Pursue voluntourism with Projects Abroad. Through our programs, you will be given a great opportunity to put your time into a meaningful and rewarding volunteer program. We offer a wide range of opportunities and regions to suit your interests and with more than 250 trained staff in our destinations and over 100 generic projects, we are one of the leading international volunteer organizations. It is thanks to our three and a half thousand volunteers who work in a developing country every year that we are able to continue functioning. Our prime responsibility is to the volunteers and we take this very seriously.

Voluntourism with Projects Abroad

By touring and volunteering simulateously, your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated and your role will be important. With Projects Abroad, you will provide new benefits and services for poor people living in the countries where you work by improving the social and physical environment around the developing world. You also will provide new opportunities and perhaps a greater vision for other volunteers. In the long run, we sincerely hope that we bring more cross-cultural understanding into the world.

Voluntourism

Through your chosen voluntourism project, you will not only provide beneficial aid and services to your community, but you will also gain from your cross-cultural immersion. As part of the global economy, we help create local employment wherever we send volunteers. Employing local staff overseas and using their talents and knowledge is important to us. Local knowledge and support enables us to channel the skills of our volunteers to regions around the world where they are needed. Volunteers also learn from their placements and the people they meet while gaining experience in a chosen field. In the 21st century, we believe this mutual respect is what cultural exchange is all about.
