How to Volunteer in Asia

How to find volunteer opportunities in Asia

Now is the time dive a bit deeper, and we’re not just talking about the Andaman seas! Opportunities to contribute are in abundance starting from India and working their way through Thailand. If you’re looking to lend medical and healthcare assistance, India is where you can put your focus on. Great ecological and educational opportunities can be easily found in Cambodia and Nepal, where you can check out responsible tourism initiatives while volunteering in crop plantings or while working in local schools. Similarly, if Education is truly a meaningful cause for you, teaching, specifically teaching English, in Asia will be an amazing direction for you to consider and explore.

Best time to volunteer in Asia

Asia's 5 main regions has an extremely varied climate, matching its varied geography. For volunteers in Southeast Asia, the dry season between November and February is considered the best time to travel and volunteer. Central Asia volunteers would have a better time visiting between April till June and throughout September when the nature is at its best. Volunteers heading towards South West Asia would find it best during its dry season, between November and February.

Essential information about Asia

In Asia there are more that 4 billion people speaking in 135 languages living in 45 contries. As crazy as this sounds, this means that before volunteering in Asia you will need to check out the weather details and visa requirements that are relevant to the region you are considering. But if you get to Vietnam on the New Year day (aka Tet) - just know that it is everyone's birthday!
