Volunteer Vacations  – in Africa, Asia and South America

Volunteer Vacations  work with charities, social enterprises and NGOs where your manpower helps provide them with the vital element that they need to keep their projects going.  Your placement price also helps to guarantee the project’s sustainability.  Travel abroad, work in a project, get to know the people, their customs, food, lifestyle and enjoy yourselves at the weekends taking in all there is to see!

Rugby coaching and HIV/AIDs education in Swaziland – showing the kids how it’s done!


Our placements have all been hand picked and visited by ourselves and the ethos of Volunteer Vacations is to match up volunteers who want to get involved in a real, grass roots project, make a difference and feel they have left a much welcomed footprint in the country visited.

We endeavour to make sure the communities on the ground benefit too from the experience of hosting the volunteers, the cross-cultural exchange and financially too.
