Volunteering in Madagascar

Contribute to meaningful volunteer work surrounded by the lush rainforests of this unique island nation

Volunteer in Madagascar with Projects Abroad and make a difference in one of the most fascinating and diverse countries in the world. You can experience amazing rainforests and iconic wildlife like lemurs, while also helping at one of our projects.

You can work with children at our local Early Childhood Development Center, or protect the rainforests through vital conservation initiatives. You can also do public health work and become part of ongoing efforts to improve wellness in rural communities through hygiene campaigns.

Where we are based in Madagascar


You’ll work in the small town of Andasibe, which has a population of about 12,000 people. The town is located four hours east of the capital, Antananarivo, and is close to three conservation areas.

One of the highlights of volunteering in Madagascar is its endemic wildlife and vegetation. You can spend your free time exploring wildlife reserves and watching as lemurs skip nimbly through the trees.

A must-see is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tsingy de Bemaraha, with its towering limestone structures. You can also walk through the majestic Avenue of the Baobabs and appreciate the beauty of these uniquely trees.

Airport pickup, flights and visas

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Madagascar Arrival Procedures page.
