We are committed to promoting cross-cultural awareness and helping communities in developing countries in Asia. Volunteer experience projects include working in orphanages, teaching English at schools, teaching monks at monasteries, community projects, working with elephants and much more. For over 10 years we have placed thousands of people in projects in Asia in countries such as Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.

We believe that by traveling, living and work side-by-side with local people and communities in Asia, participants can increase global understanding. Everyone who participates in one of our programs comes away with a greater understanding of the global community, the cultural diversity of Asia and the challenges that developing countries face. We are very proud of the positive feedback we get from our volunteers. We believe this reflects the high quality of our programs in Asia.
