Why are volunteering holidays abroad so popular?
Quite simply, it’s because doing charity work abroad can be a wonderful way to explore the world, meet new friends, and make an impact wherever you go. Perhaps that’s why volunteering holidays are becoming increasingly popular, especially among young adults.
Whether you’re looking to volunteer for turtle conservation in Bali, take part in meaningful medical projects abroad in Namibia, or to teach English in Brazil, there are a wealth of opportunities available to you.

Make An Impact In Asia
Asia is the world’s most populous continent and has everything from big cities and rural villages to remote jungles, cozy beaches, and massive mountains. Whether you’re traversing the busy streets of Hanoi or hanging out on top of the world (literally) in Nepal, you can have a uniquely marvellous holiday.
Needless to say, there are a variety of charity work abroad projects to consider for those volunteering in Asia. Countries in the region have a need for volunteers to assist with programmes in many areas, including education, childcare, community development, medicine, environmental conservation, human rights, and business support.
