What makes us different?
Gold Standard of Support
Safety is everything to us and has been for over 30 years. Everyone we work with is thoroughly vetted and trained. Our teams at home and abroad provide a world-class support network to help you thrive.
We take care of everything, so you don’t have to. Shopping around for insurance, organising airport pickups, and finding safe, clean accommodation all takes time and extra money. We take care of it all for you, and it’s included in the price as standard.
Make a Real Impact
This isn’t just a holiday and we don’t want to waste your time. That’s why we invest in planning, measurement tools, and training resources. This means any project you choose is meaningful and creates real, positive change where it’s needed the most.
I would highly recommend Projects Abroad to anyone as they’re well organised and take the stress off of you especially when you have to travel far from home. It’s comforting knowing they’re always only a phone call away if anything goes amiss.
I came into my medical placement knowing nearly nothing about medicine other than the fact that I wanted one day to work in the field, and I left knowing exactly what branch of surgery I want to specialise in.
Medicine Internship in Mexico
If you have the opportunity to travel to Argentina with Projects Abroad, do it. Take the risk. Take the risk, because, my experience was everything I could have asked for and more.
Projects Abroad Madagascar have incredible staff members. They were able to improve on previously established projects and develop them into something that the community needed, wanted and benefited from. Additionally, they were there for us 100% of the time.
Don’t believe words can truly describe the unforgettable experience I had. From the people, cultures and trips, the memories I gained will forever remain with me. Not once did I feel unwelcome and Projects Abroad worked very hard to make sure everyone felt safe and happy.
I loved actively helping out and removing the fences that were harming animals and blocking their migratory paths. It felt like I was really making a difference!
Volunteering with Wildlife in Botswana for Teenagers
My experience at the NGO was instrumental in helping me decide what career path I wanted to take and at the time of writing, I have been accepted to study masters in human rights law.
