Your Gap Year in Asia - blending travel with volunteering
The last two decades has seen the rise of the gap-year, as increasing numbers of students take a year out between A-levels and university. Though initially seen by some people in a negative light it has rapidly become accepted by universities and employers as a worthwhile and constructive use of time, thanks largely to the great move students have made towards spending a portion of their time “giving something back” by volunteering with an international organisation such as Projects Abroad. So when you are planning your gap year in Asia, why not consider combining it with one of our placements in Cambodia, China, India, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand or Vietnam?
We operate in many Asian destinations and in each one we offer something different. In every single one we have Teaching projects - where our volunteers teach conversational English in schools – and Care projects – where volunteers work in orphanages or care homes. But we also offer a host of other placements - including ones in Medicine, Journalism, Law, Sports, Business and Conservation & Environment – as well as incredible one-off experiences – such as our Nomad Project in Mongolia, our IT Project in Sri Lanka, and our Khmer Project in Cambodia.
Gap year destinations in Asia with Projects Abroad
People looking to spend a part of their gap-year in Asia on a volunteering placement come to Projects Abroad because we are the most successful organisation in our field. We offer the greatest variety of projects and the most flexibility – as well as choosing exactly what you want to do and where, you also get to choose how long you volunteer for and when you begin. So our projects are perfect for fitting into a busy gap-year schedule.
Once you have booked up with us we take on as much of the hassle of organising your trip as we possibly can; our prices include your accommodation, meals and insurance, so you do not have to think about these, and we can even organise your flights for you, if you wish! Your arrival in your destination country will be just as easy; we will meet you at the airport or train/bus station, take you to meet your host family, and give you a full orientation of your local area and placement.
