Volunteering as a Group in Asia with Projects Abroad
As a group volunteering with Projects Abroad in Asia, you will get the unforgettable opportunity to discover not only the diverse religions and cultures but also the beautiful landscapes that define this vibrant continent. Some regions have a strong Eastern identity, others have strong Western influences, and others have a combination of the both.
Our programmes are available in many regions and cover a variety of interests. Whether you’re a group from school, a bunch of friends from university, a company looking for a corporate trip or an organisation looking to take your skills further afield, you will find a programme and a region to suit your interests!
