Where to Volunteer
A volunteers’ favourite; this lush forested setting in Chiang Mai is home to around 30 elephants which have been rescued from a lifetime of abuse working in the tourist trade. You’ll be helping to feed and look after the elephants, conserve their environment and of course taking part in the best time of day – bath time!
They say it’s more fun in the Philippines and that’s certainly true at the GK Enchanted Farm! On this unique project that aims to eradicate poverty in the Philippines by 2024 you can help support budding entrepreneurs and their villages through teaching, building, farming, cooking and even football coaching. Our first volunteer loved it so much that she’s still there!
Help save the tortugas (that’s Spanish for turtle, you know) on the beautiful Playa Matapalo in Costa Rica. You’ll be doing vital work patrolling the beach to stop egg poachers, monitoring nests and collecting data. Best of all, you might get to see the baby turtles hatch and release them into the ocean – go little tortugas, go!
Fancy spending your days telling stories, playing games and caring for the kids? Then this is the project for you! You’ll be supporting some really under-resourced centres with children from brand new to age 7 by co-ordinating activities, helping with feeding and nap time, general housework and of course lots of cuddles!
Experience one of our best selling projects and get a chance to capture the 'Big Five' on camera!

Get your feel-goods in paradise on one of our Fijian island projects. The project's main aims are to improve local living conditions, nutrition and access to drinking water.
