“Fiji Shark Conservation - Absolutely amazing time!”

Written on: 27/02/2019 by Hackett441 (1 review written)

I participated on the Fiji Shark Conservation project in October and November for 5 weeks and had an absolutely amazing time! I was recommended by a friend who had completed the project 6 months prior and he wouldn't stop raving about how much he enjoyed it and I completely understand why. The experience of diving with sharks is surreal and I learned all my PADI qualifications on this project, introducing me to a completely new world. The thrill of knowing you are actively helping such… Read Full Review

“Great experience in South Africa with Projects Abroad! ”

Written on: 27/01/2019 by jamescarnell (1 review written)

I had a great time working on Projects Abroad's Music Production course in Cape Town, South Africa. The Projects Abroad staff were really friendly and made it easy for me to settle in when I arrived, whilst my host family were really welcoming, and I had the best time staying there! After my induction day, I started work at my project and I'm still wondering where the time went; I should have stayed for longer! The set up at the music studio is amazing, and the guys there are really friendly… Read Full Review

“4 week Cambodia public health project”

Written on: 06/01/2019 by Cooktr188 (1 review written)

The public health project, by Projects-Abroad was very rewarding. A typical day would involve a stock check, cleaning childrens' ears, cutting nails and teaching hygiene lessons at a school in the morning,then taking blood pressure/glucose and giving medication to adults in the afternoon. I loved the hands on approach (taught how to do everything during an induction) and being able to teach prevention rather than just treating them. At times it was difficult due to communication barriers and… Read Full Review

“Teaching in Sri Lanka”

Written on: 06/01/2019 by AlvinToffler (1 review written)

As you enter the arrivals lounge at Colombo airport, the first things you notice are the noises in the city and the intense heat and humidity. I immediately asked myself why I'd had brought so many jumpers and pairs of jeans. I never thought I would see sweat marks on the knees of my jeans by 10 am each day and a t-shirt that looked as if I'd just pulled it out of the washing machine. Teaching in Sri Lanka is an amazing experience. The children are delightful and you're constantly greeted with… Read Full Review

“Nepal Building Project”

Written on: 03/01/2019 by James286 (1 review written)

Like many people I wanted to go travelling, but give something back at the same time and be more involved and understand the country I wanted to vista and explore, which was were Project Abroad gave me this opportunity. I had looked up alot of other companies offering similar trips and found them to be no where near as detailed in how their operation worked, and after reading the PA web site, and watching many of it's videos filmed by normal people like me, I was sold. They assisted me over… Read Full Review

“CHILDCARE VOLUNTEERING IN NEPAL 50+”

Written on: 14/12/2018 by bethasilcock (1 review written)

I had a wonderful time during my Two Week Senior Special in Nepal with Projects Abroad. Planning was made easy for me by the staff and they were quick to answer any questions I had about the project and the travel. Once I arrived, I was made to feel very safe and comfortable by the local Nepal Projects Abroad staff members. Our working hours were very well managed and organized. We were placed in a local school and enjoyed both helping to refurbish the buildings and also getting to know the… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2018 by Barrett190 (1 review written)

I was in Nepal for 4 weeks with Projects Abroad and spent 2 weeks doing the general care project at MSPN New Life Centre and 1 week doing the building project at Nava Suryodaya English Secondary School. The Projects Abroad staff were enormously helpful throughout the planning of my project and during the whole of my time in Nepal, even during the week I spent travelling alone. The general care project was a little disappointing due to the fact it was difficult to plan activities for the… Read Full Review

“An unforgettable experience!”

Written on: 19/11/2018 by Jessbollands (1 review written)

I had a brilliant 4 weeks in Cape Town as an intern at Nash Records, a record label and recording studio. I have just graduated from university and it was an amazing experience before heading out into the real world! My host family was so kind and welcoming, I loved being at home and spending time with my host mum and my roommates. The accommodation was really comfortable and the food incredible! When I wasn't at home I was out exploring all the sights Cape Town has to offer: hiking up Lion's… Read Full Review

“High School Building In Nepal”

Written on: 26/10/2018

Our biggest worry going into the trip was safety. Of course, Nepal is a developing country, and I was scared of adapting well despite the friendly and charming faces I'd soon recognise as a second family. In my opinion, ProjectsAbroad high school special takes safety to the highest level. The co-orodinator never leaves your sight, and by the end of the trip almost becomes a second mom. The company picked a comfortable, basic hotel, well beyond expectation size wise. The airport pickup and… Read Full Review

“Projects Abroad Review”

Written on: 25/10/2018 by yoStafford1949 (1 review written)

I heard about Projects Abroad from a school career fair so I knew that the company was legitimate. I was kept very informed and up to date about everything in the lead up to my project and being assigned a volunteer advisor allows you to ask questions and you receive answers to your queries within just a few days which was very helpful. Projects Abroad organised all of my travel for me and arranged my pick up in the airport for me and transport to where I would be doing my project which was… Read Full Review

“Conservation volunteering in Madagascar”

Written on: 22/10/2018 by KEWood (1 review written)

I have just come back from 6 weeks in Madagascar of which I spent 4 weeks volunteering with Projects Abroad in the conservation team. We were based in a large village in Eastern central Madagascar, which is right next door to several important national parks. One park has virgin rainforestt, while the ones we worked in were mainly secondary forest. We worked in the forest, Monday to Thursday on a variety of tasks - path laying, tree planting, seedling collecting, lemur censuses, taking school… Read Full Review

“Diving and Marine Conservation in Belize”

Written on: 22/10/2018 by echshore (1 review written)

The diving and marine conservation placement in Belize with Projects Abroad was the perfect location for me to undertake my undergraduate dissertation. The staff were amazing in helping me achieve what I wanted in terms of not only the placement but also for my dissertation and making everyone feel comfortable and welcome not only on arrival but for the duration of the placement. I stayed for 5 weeks and was able to further my knowledge of diving with several dives a day between Monday and… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2018 by chloe97040 (1 review written)

I travelled to South Africa to take part in the Human Rights and Law Project in Cape Town. As an aspiring lawyer in the UK, this project was extremely beneficial to my future plans. I stayed for 4 weeks with a host family; which is definitely one of the best parts of Projects Abroad, you get to fully emerse yourself in life in that country! The impact of this project on the community in Cape Town is very important. Without the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office, many of our clients would… Read Full Review

“Transforming Trip to Tanzania ”

Written on: 20/10/2018 by AnabelleLane (1 review written)

Before I travelled to Tanzania with Projects Abroad I had never travelled alone, however the team at Projects Abroad made me feel very comfortable and informed by ensuring both me and my parents had support and information pre-departure. I spent two weeks in Tanzania on the High School Care and Community project, where I learnt a lot about the culture and working with children. Although I met many different people within the community at Arusha, Tanzania , there were always members of the… Read Full Review

“An unexpectedly valuable experience!”

Written on: 18/10/2018 by dominikaleitane (1 review written)

As someone who wants to undergo a law conversion degree but is not yet doing so (I'm in my Third Year of my undergraduate degree), I knew I wanter to do the Law and Human Rights internship, since it is the only human rights law-related work experience I could find that does not require a law degree. I thought it would just be a CV box ticker, however I was wrong. Even though I was only in Cape Town for 2 weeks, I have learned an incredible amount about law as a career, and more specifically I… Read Full Review

“Amazing Experience - would love to go again”

Written on: 18/10/2018 by 304Fallon (1 review written)

I spent a month in Peru with the archaeology project and it was absolutely incredible. After a particularly awful 18 hour flight, my host family were very welcoming and kind. I immediately felt at home. I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone, especially students on their gap year, who's looking for a volunteering experience where no two days are the same and everyone on the team is genuinely looking out for your wellbeing. At first I was apprehensive about going by myself to a… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Elective Experience”

Written on: 11/10/2018 by crgrav (1 review written)

I had the best time doing my healthcare elective through Projects Abroad. I chose this company because of the competitive prices they offered compared to other organisations and because of the project that was on offer. I went to Cambodia and I was practicing physiotherapy in an orphanage with children. When you sign up for PA, you get access to a myprojectsabroad page which has all the information you need regarding Visa's, flights, FAQ about your chosen country etc. I found this page really… Read Full Review

The project was very well run and there was a clear schedule for volunteers to follow while also having opportunities to be creative with teaching the children. The volunteers were very well looked after and all the staff could not have been more helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the community aspect of the project and how welcome I was made to feel… Read Full Review

“Costa Rica Conservation & Environment ”

Written on: 09/10/2018 by Natasha136 (1 review written)

I’m in my first year of A-levels and, in the summer of 2018, I decided I wanted to do something that would help me gain more independence and challenge me in new ways both mentally and physically. When I eventually landed in San Jose after a short stopover in Miami it was so exciting because after months of anticipation I was finally here in the capital of Costa Rica! The first night I stayed with a host family, my host mum was the loveliest welcoming person and was very passionate about… Read Full Review

“Volunteering in Vietnam”

Written on: 07/10/2018 by SophieAlvarado (1 review written)

The most amazing thing I have ever done was to volunteer in Vietnam. It has given me a sense of achievement and made me think about my practice as a professional. Projects Abroad were professional from start to finish in supporting me and keeping me up to date on everything regarding visa, where I was going to stay the place I was going to be working and much much more. I was met at the airport by a representative who showed me to my accommodation and around Hanoi and also the place I would be… Read Full Review
