Volunteer Asia: Meaningful Travels and Tours in Nepal, Sri Lanka and India

There's something for everyone, from environmental protection to animal rescue to community development, medical care, childcare, and teaching English in Asia. Volunteering programs are offered year-round as part of your gap year or short-term humanitarian work in Asia.


Volunteering allows people to help with early childhood education in Kathmandu and the surrounding areas. Volunteers who travel to Asia get childcare experience while also assisting in creating a supportive atmosphere in which young children can learn, grow, and play with other children their age—this aids in developing young minds and fosters an interest in future learning and education. As a Childcare volunteer, you will work in centers throughout Kathmandu, including both the city and the surrounding hills.

The specific tasks assigned to each volunteer differ depending on the facility you are assigned to. In general, you can anticipate assisting with:

  • Games and lessons
  • Children's entertainment and play
  • Feeding and mealtime assistance
  • Renovations


Childcare, Medical, Teaching, Cultural Immersion, and Turtle Conservation are among the many reliable Sri Lanka volunteer projects. In Sri Lanka, volunteer labor can be found in Kandy, Hanguranketha, Dambulla, Dambana, Ambalangoda, and Wasgamuwa.

Medical students can learn and observe at a training facility in Kandy as part of a medical project. Volunteers shadow local staff in various departments and get experience in a variety of clinical techniques, all while helping Sri Lankans obtain greater access to affordable healthcare.

As a healthcare volunteer in Sri Lanka, you will benefit the local population while growing personally and professionally.

  • Keeping track of a variety of procedure
  • gaining clinical practice
  • enhancing your communication abilities
  • gaining medical knowledge and experience
  • Immersing yourself in the culture of Sri Lanka
  • Learning about Sri Lanka's rich heritage 


Dentistry is an excellent option for volunteer work on Asia tours. This is an excellent opportunity for dental students to learn about dentistry in India. The facility serves overseas patients seeking low-cost dental care in India. Volunteers will learn about dental care in a cross-cultural setting and how to run a dental practice.

Volunteering in Dentistry in Kerala will help you improve personally and professionally while helping the local community.

  • Access to dental care
  • Learning from a dentist
  • Observing clinical practice
  • learning about dental Centre management
