Welcome to the Volunteer South East Asia website, a forum and network for disseminating and sharing information about volunteering opportunities at a grassroots level in the countries of South East Asia.
In this context, grassroots implies small-scale initiatives which have been established to directly aid the local people.
Therefore, this will be a place for advertising and promoting independent organizations who are simply grateful to have you offer your time and energy, don’t necessarily require you to have any specific skills and talents, and don’t cost you more to work for than you might otherwise expect to pay for your accommodation and food in any case.
This site is intended to supplement – rather than duplicate – volunteering avenues which are only primarily accessible through fee-charging ‘voluntourism’ organizations or via specialist intakes administered by NGOs in a volunteer’s country of origin.
For ethical travellers who have already striven to make a social contribution to the countries they visit, for they who might wish to do so, and for the small community-based projects who would welcome their help…let’s make it happen!
Initially, we will be concentrating on compiling detailed information about volunteering opportunities in the following mainland nations of ASEAN: Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.
***VOLUNTEER SOUTH EAST ASIA IS MERELY A DIRECTORY AND LINKING SITE. WE ARE IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH THE LISTED ORGANIZATIONS. WE ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ORGANIZATIONS’ DEALINGS WITH VOLUNTEERS AND VICE VERSA.***
