VOLUNTEER IN ASIA

Volunteer in Asia with PMGY, a low-cost, responsible volunteer travel organisation. Plan My Gap Year provides unique, personal and secure programs abroad with a number of volunteer projects in Bali, Cambodia, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.

 

“The pre-departure information that I received was brilliant, all questions that I had was answered very quickly and informatively by a member of the PMGY team. The Volunteer Handbook was very helpfully and made me feel fully prepared about my trip to Asia. When arriving in the county there was a member of the PMGY team waiting at the airport. Throughout my teaching project I was fully supported at all times by both the teachers at the school and the host family. I knew where to turn to if I needed any lesson ideas or if I was unsure.” – VICTORIA HAMPTON | UNITED STATES
