We are a non profit organization which introduces volunteers to small charities in East Asia. We take no fees from either side, our only interest is in introducing good volunteers to suitable charities. Most projects offer free accommodation and food but volunteers need to pay their own travel expenses and take some pocket money!
If you are taking a gap year, between jobs, are able to take a few weeks off work or on summer vacation from university and would enjoy travelling and doing something really worthwhile, then perhaps you should consider this!
If you would like to teach English, teach a sport, help run a summer camp or if you have any vocational skills or are good with young children we would love to hear from you.
‘I ended up in a different project from the one I applied to. It was perfect for me and I really appreciate the guidance from Just Volunteers! I feel my volunteering has helped the children… and certainly helped me grow as a person!’

‘The New Hope project outside Beijing has been a great experience. I really bonded with the children and enjoyed my time with the other volunteers.’

My time volunteering was more rewarding than I ever could have imagined. I learnt so much about so many things and I can't wait to go back and visit all the amazing people I met and worked with.
