We often get asked, “can I volunteer abroad for free?” or, “can I get paid to volunteer abroad?”. If we had to limit our answer, we’d say “no, you can’t”. Don't click away though, because we're sure we can convince you of the benefits of paying.
Let's face it: if volunteering abroad for free sounds too good to be true, then it is. It's extremely difficult to take part in a volunteer project without contributing financially. At Projects Abroad, we don't ask our partners in developing countries to pay in exchange for assistance; we rely on the fees paid by volunteers like you.
Here are four reasons why you can’t travel and volunteer abroad with us for free.
If you’d like to volunteer with us, check out our pages about volunteer work and international internships. On each of our project pages, we have a nifty price calculator to help you figure out how much you need for your trip. As an example, have a look at our Thailand Conservation Project’s price calculator.
