Volunteer work in Asia

Volunteer in Asia and Malaysia with Ecoteer where we run volunteer projects on tropical islands to tiger conservation projects in Taman Negara. Each conservation volunteer project is unique and will allow you to help a cause in Malaysia whilst getting to know the people and culture, offering you a meaningful volunteer holiday experience. You can volunteer with tigers, Learn to dive and save turtles, volunteer with Orangutans or even climb to the 2nd highest peak in Malaysia.

You can also enjoy volunteer holidays in Sri Lanka with elephants or Teach English in Thailand, help local communities in India, play your part at an Orangutan and Wildlife Rescue Centre in Indonesia or even join a volunteer conservation project in Bali.

If you don’t know where to experience a volunteer abroad project then choosing to volunteer in Asia is highly recommended as the routes are backpacker and gap year friendly with many similar travelers on their own voyages of volunteer abroad experiences. You can join volunteer projects in Malaysia, Borneo, Bali, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia and many more. Join one of Ecoteer Responsible Travel’s Volunteer abroad projects in Asia and Travel with a cause.

Volunteer abroad in Africa

Ecoteer Responsible Travel has partnered up with various NGO’s in Africa, offering conservation volunteer projects that allow you to volunteer with Lions, Gorillas, Great White Sharks, Rhinos, Whales and Colobus Monkies.  Or whilst you volunteer in Africa you may want to help the local communities and teach English or run a recycling swap shop.  Ecoteer’s new marine conservation diving project offers you the chance to volunteer abroad in the Red Sea. You can volunteer in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana and Egypt.

Volunteering in Africa is something that will be challenging, diverse but ultimately satisfying.  There are so many things to see and do and with the world’s largest animals in both the sea and on land volunteering in Africa on a volunteer conservation project can only be described as a dream come true.

School Fieldtrips and Group Volunteering

One of the best ways to learn is through experiencing.  This is why Ecoteer Responsible Travel now offer school fieldtrip programmes which are perfect for secondary and tertiary education groups.  Your students can get involved in one of our three projects in Malaysia. But all have four similar elements.

These are

Learn by doing – We get your students actively involved in conservation efforts.

Service learning – the best way to learn and to give back to the local community at the same time

Community projects – The community project depends on what is needed at the time at each of the projects, could be beach cleans, home improvement or school improvement projects

Cultural immersion – All of our projects are based in a local village/community. Your programme will benefit the local community not only by your actions but financially (all food, accommodation and transfers are locally owned) and also through a cultural immersion and exchange between your students and the local children and their parents.
