Volunteer Vacations

Volunteering abroad is increasingly popular amongst people looking to do meaningful work during their vacation or career break. As recently featured in Ok! Magaizne, you can spend as little as two weeks volunteering in 24 countries around the world with Projects Abroad. A volunteer vacation with us offers the unique opportunity to contribute to a local community while gaining an indepth cultural understanding not possible on the tourist trek. By spending your vacation as a volunteer with Projects Abroad, you are joining a community of fellow volunteers and local people in developing countries - working hard, traveling and having a good time while achieving worthwhile goals.


Great Projects for Volunteer Vacations

Here are some hand picked volunteer vacation options:

Teaching English in Cambodia

Projects Abroad works with neglected children who attend charity schools or live in orphanages in Cambodia. You will teach kids aged 5-16 in classes of 10 to 20 children. Our teaching volunteers work in Phnom Penh or in a village on the tropical island of Koh Rong Samleom. This is a great opportunity really immerse yourself in Cambodian culture while doing good abroad. You can learn more about Teaching English in Cambodia here.

Building in Ghana

Our Building project in Ghana is great if you want to get your hands dirty! Based either in Kwamoso in the Akuapem Hills or in a small village near Cape Coast, you can work on a variety of construction projects. The work focuses on building homes for families in need or refurbishing classrooms. Your contribution to these communities will allow people to move into better quality houses and give students the opportunity to study in secure, new classrooms. You could also get involved in landscaping, painting, and other renovations. Learn more about our Building Project in Ghana here.
