What makes us different?
Gold Standard of Support
Safety is everything to us and has been for over 25 years. We wouldn't dream of contracting-out your safety to third parties, as some do. Instead, we employ, thoroughly vet, and train all our own staff. Together, we provide a world-class support network to help you thrive.
We take care of everything, so you don’t have to. Shopping around for insurance, organising airport pickups, and finding safe, clean accommodation all takes time and extra money. We take care of it all for you, and it’s included in the price as standard.
Make a Real Impact
This isn’t just a holiday and we don’t want to waste your time. That is why we invest in planning, measurement tools, and training resources. This means any project you choose is meaningful and creates real, positive change where it is needed most.
Projects Abroad Madagascar have incredible staff members. They were able to improve on previously established projects and develop them into something that the community needed, wanted and benefited from. Additionally, they were there for us 100% of the time.
Volunteer with Children in Madagascar
I would highly recommend Projects Abroad to anyone as they’re well organised and take the stress off of you especially when you have to travel far from home. It’s comforting knowing they’re always only a phone call away if anything goes amiss.
I loved actively helping out and removing the fences that were harming animals and blocking their migratory paths. It felt like I was really making a difference!
Volunteering with Wildlife in Botswana for Teenagers
My experience at the NGO was instrumental in helping me decide what career path I wanted to take and at the time of writing, I have been accepted to study masters in human rights law.
Human Rights Internship in Mongolia
Don’t believe words can truly describe the unforgettable experience I had. From the people, cultures and trips, the memories I gained will forever remain with me. Not once did I feel unwelcome and Projects Abroad worked very hard to make sure everyone felt safe and happy.
Volunteering with Children in South Africa for Teenagers
Overall, my trip was an unforgettable experience, and inspired me and, I think, everybody in our team to volunteer again.
Volunteer Building in Nepal for Teenagers
I really felt as though the Projects Abroad staff went above and beyond to make sure we took advantage of every opportunity in Tanzania.
Medicine Internship in Tanzania
