Volunteering in Asia

Experience the local cultures and diverse landscapes while volunteering in Asia

Make a tangible impact in a local community by joining one of our volunteer projects in Asia. We have many different projects in several countries across the continent, so there’s definitely a placement to suit you.


Help protect important marine ecosystems, like coral reefs, on our Marine Conservation Projects, or work with disadvantaged children to teach vital early childhood skills. You can also do something completely different, like living with nomads in Mongolia. These are just some of the incredible volunteer opportunities in Asia available to you.


We’ll take care of all the details of your project during your voluntary work in Asia. We do all we can to make sure you have a hassle-free trip. Our full time in-destination staff are also available 24/7 to give you the support you need. This means you can spend your energy on what really matters: working towards long-term goals that address the needs of local communities.

Where we are based in Asia

As a volunteer in Asia, you can explore some of the fascinating cultures and histories of the world’s largest continent. We currently work in nine different Asian countries, so there are plenty of options for you to choose from. You can read more about our internships in Asia here if you're specifically want to gain professional work experience.


Go on a mission to the top of the world to do wildlife research in the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal, or go diving in warm waters to do underwater survey work in Thailand. If you love animals, you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to volunteer with pandas in China! You can also experience a more traditional way of life with nomads on the Mongolian Steppe.


Some of these programs are opportunities to volunteer in Southeast Asia. Support children’s education at kindergartens and other childcare centers in Cambodia and the Philippines. Or teach English at disadvantaged schools in Myanmar and Vietnam.


Join us as a volunteer in Asia today, and give back to local communities while exploring different countries and cultures.
