Types of Volunteering
A volunteers’ favourite, this one! This lush forested setting in Chiang Mai is home to around 30 elephants which have been rescued from a lifetime of abuse working in the tourist trade. You’ll be helping to feed and look after the elephants, conserve their environment and of course taking part in the best time of day – bath time!
Travel through India on this month long adventure. Split your time between exploring India’s fascinating culture and beautiful scenery, and volunteering at two local projects. Give something back to the local communities of rural Rajasthan and coastal Goa.
Your chance to shoot the Big 5! With a camera of course. Also your chance to help protect this amazing habitat for these animals by helping with research, monitoring, and rehabilitation. Feel like a real ranger doing wildlife tracking and work to raise environmental awareness in the local community.
Kevin Richardson (also known as the 'Lion Whisperer') is a high-profile conservationist who runs The Lion Whisperer Wildlife Sanctuary. This 1, 2 or 4 week ‘muck in' opportunity will leave you smiling with the memory caring for various predators covering various duties from enrichment, to basic animal husbandry.
This voluntour is designed to raise awareness of the conservation efforts made in Sarawak and to bring harmony between people and orangutans. Be one of the special few who experience and help with orangutans being rehabilitated and see the semi-wild orangutans at the world famous Semenggoh Nature Reserve.
Fancy spending your days telling stories, playing games and caring for the kids? Then this is the project for you! You’ll be supporting some really under-resourced centres with children from brand new to age 7 by co-ordinating activities, helping with feeding and nap time, general housework and of course lots of hugs!
Teach English to children in one of the poorest areas of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Help make a difference to local families and in your spare time soak up the delights of the local area and explore the formidable Angkor Wat temples. This project aims to restore hope and dignity to these once-proud and prosperous communities
Get your feel-goods in paradise on one of our Fijian island projects.

It will hardly seem like work!
Teach and encourage children varying ages (6-14 years old) to communicate in English through practical lessons and fun learning activities.
