Volunteer Programs in Asia
Asia has many different regions with distinct cultural, historical, and religious identities. Projects Abroad arranges placements throughout much of Asia and our programs are incredibly diverse in terms of the type of work that you can do. You can teach English in Bangladesh or China, care for children in Vietnam, Laos or Nepal, preserve the environment in Thailand or Cambodia, live and learn from a Nomadic family in Mongolia, build schools in the Philippines, and more!

What is it like to volunteer in Asia?
While volunteering in Asia, you will also have free time, giving you the opportunity to travel and tour other regions. Whether you want to white-water raft in the foaming glacial rivers in Nepal, visit stunning Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka, or sample local dishes in Shanghai, we can guarantee you won’t be bored!
Asia is unique in that we have varied accommodation options. Most countries like Mongolia, Bangladesh, Nepal, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines have host family accommodations. You’ll find them incredibly welcoming and they will doubtless be eager to find out all about you and your life back home. A few of our destinations in Asia have dorm style accommodations such as, Cambodia, Vietnam, and China. This will give you the chance to really be a part of our extraordinary volunteer community.
