Two High School Special volunteers overseas for Christmas enjoy spending time teaching children in Sri Lanka.

Christmas Volunteering Abroad

Make the most of the holidays and use your time and energy to help support communities in need overseas

Join one of our Christmas volunteering opportunities abroad and become part of our ongoing efforts to support local communities. You won't just be working on a quick fix, you'll be using your time and energy to help us implement long-term, sustainable solutions where it's needed most. It's a way for you to celebrate giving by making a tangible difference.


In the winter, we offer Team Trips that take place over Christmas and New Year. You'll travel over fixed dates and work towards specific goals with a group of passionate individuals.


As a bonus, many of these programmes double as the perfect escape from frosty winter days. There's no better way to escape the winter blues than by jetting off to countries like Ghana, South Africa, or Madagascar!

Can't find what you're looking for?

We’d be happy to talk about creating a custom project for you. Most of our staff have been volunteers themselves, so they’re well placed to answer your questions, big or small.

Is volunteering abroad during Christmas right for me?

By volunteering abroad during the winter, you can pair the tradition of Christmas with giving back to communities in need and travelling.


Our Team Trips over Christmas are based on a short-term model that’s part of our long-term goals. What you do is part of a long-term plan. It’s not a quick fix for the holidays.


We also provide you with a hassle-free experience, and you’ll have 24/7 support from our in-country staff while you’re abroad.

What can I do?

Christmas volunteering abroad is a wonderful way to give back and embrace the the true spirit of the holiday season.


Over Christmas and New Year, you can choose from a range of Team Trips:  


  • Childcare & Community in Ghana
  • Childcare & Community in South Africa
  • Childcare & Conservation in Madagascar
  • Building in Nepal
  • Medicine in Ghana
  • Medicine in Sri Lanka


With our fixed dates, you can maximise your time off and spend more of it engaged in rewarding, structured volunteer activities.
