Explore Asia to its fullest by travelling to not one, not two but three countries! Experience the exotic cuisine, the rich culture and breath-taking
scenic beauty to its fullest while you volunteer with children at various local schools and care centres
On this multi country project you will volunteer primarily with disadvantaged children, providing an important assistance in their care, education and early development
Following the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, our projects adjusted focus to provide disaster relief to those in need. In conjunction with our partners, trucks of supplies and family care packages were taken to some of the most affected areas. Now our projects are focused on initiatives within our local communities, who have needs around education and improving educational facilities.
In Nepal, you will be volunteering at a care centre or children’s home, depending on your skills and local needs at the time. In India, you will primarily support local education efforts, supporting teachers and other leaders directly or work with their students individually or in groups. Lastly, you will rounding off your trip in Laos, where you will be focusing on teaching English to young children to help improve their English skills and chances of a better education and employment opportunities.
Although often from difficult backgrounds, these children have an incredible desire to learn and your support will ensure that their needs are met as you make a valuable contribution their
caregivers, teachers and the community as a whole.
Please note travel between Nepal, India and Laos is not included, but please speak to your Country Expert who will be able to advise you on your options and costs involved.
