Volunteer Vacations – in Africa, Asia and South America
Volunteer Vacations are an exciting way to visit a country and work with charities, social enterprises and NGOs where your manpower helps provide the vital element that they need to keep their projects going.
Be part of a grass roots project, make a difference, meet new people, stretch yourself and enjoy yourselves at the weekends taking in all there is to see!
These projects are suitable for: Gap Year, Year Out, Uni Holidays, Sabbaticals, Career Breaks, Families and single ladies and men.
Sports Coaching in South Africa – the kids always want to be in the photo!
Our Volunteer Projects operate in the following countries:
Combos – £100 off each placement when combining one or more
In Southern Africa, it’s possible to combine say Sports Coaching in Port Elizabeth with Rugby Coaching and HIV/AIDS education in Swaziland or with our Wilderness Training Courses and Experiences in the north of South Africa or with Marine Conservation in Mozambique.
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 project 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, from the cross-cultural exchange and, most important, financially too.

Sports coaching (rugby, football, hockey, netball, cricket, basketball, swimming, tennis, boxing)
