Projects Abroad Reviews

Volunteering with Projects Abroad proved to be an extremely rewarding experience

Volunteered taught me things I didn’t even know I did not know. I’d recommend it to any first time traveller or anyone looking to experience a country the way the locals do and not a guide book’s checklist.

Couldn't Recommend More

Projects Abroad are a great company; I taught English in Costa Rica for four months with them a few years ago and had one of the best times of my life.

Life-Changing Experience

I went on a group volunteer trip to Botswana with Projects Abroad when I was 16 years old. Our project was related to wildlife conservation and I got to work with with animals like baobas and elephants. I would highly recommended the experience to anyone, whether you are a teenager, or adult, just apply!

Projects abroad care and community project review

I went to Ghana with projects abroad as part of a care and community short time special and had the most amazing time! The whole of the project was well planned and there was support available with anything I needed from the moment I booked until the moment I arrived back home again so I felt safe the entire duration. Volunteering taught me a lot about myself and gave me the opportunity to help out an amazing community who well and truly have a special space in my heart now. The project was challenging- living with strangers with no showers or running water and the electricity would turn off regularly throughout the day and the work we did was challenging in the heat and but was definitely rewarding and our supervisors made sure we was always okay if anyone was feeling unwell or upset. I was worried about making friends before I left as it was my first time travelling alone but I made some of my bestest friends in Ghana who I still regularly meet up with and now have friends all across the globe:)
I would 1000% recommend projects abroad to anyone considering it and I can't wait until I get the next chance to volunteer with them!

Projects abroad ain't that great

I did projects abroad back in 2009 to south Africa. I was super disappointed because I had done trips with Me to We before that and they were much better organized.
Projects abroad really lacked a team leader. They let you do your own thing which is great if that is what you're looking for. We spent the first week just doing touristy things and then spent the second week just visiting places like refugee camps and after school programs. We never spent more than an hour at each place and that to me is not considered development at all.
The host family was nice but it just kinda felt like we were staying there, not a part of the family.
All in all, projects abroad is NOT a development trip but a good way to travel if you want some cool people to hang out with.

Great experience!

I volunteered with mountain conservation in Nepal and loved it! Friendly people and great area to go trekking in your free time. I can't wait to get back to Nepal someday!
