“Projects Abroad - Building Project Nepal”

Written on: 19/11/2017 by harrychiam (1 review written)

Used Projects Abroad to visit Nepal and engage in a school building project in summer 2017. They were helpful from start to finish, answering all of my questions and queries before I left and always being open to help whilst I was there. Projects Abroad met me and guided me whilst I was in Nepal, arranging everything for me ensuring it was safe. I spent 4 weeks in Kathmandu volunteering and had the time of my life. The work was fun and the staff were enthusiastic and encouraging every step of… Read Full Review

“Most incredible experience of my life ”

Written on: 19/11/2017 by rosesecc (1 review written)

As soon as I booked my trip I felt looked after with the volunteer advisor emailing me asking if I had any questions or concerns. This level of support continued to right before I left when she phoned me to ensure I was ready and not unsure about any aspects of my trip which was greatly appreciated as I was very nervous. The placement (Rainforest conservation in Peru) itself was incredibly well organised with the activities well run and never boring. It also felt as though we were doing… Read Full Review

“A Month Teaching in Nanyuki, Kenya”

Written on: 19/11/2017 by ChrisOrchin (1 review written)

For someone who finally made the decision to do voluntary work overseas the process and support from Projects Abroad was all that I could have hoped for. From the outset, from the initial enquiry to actually getting back to Nairobi and the plane home I couldn't have asked more. The Projects Abroad staff were both supportive and informative, I even had a phone call at home from the Country Lead. The journey went without a hitch. I was met on my arrival, late at night and taken to the overnight… Read Full Review

“Home Away from Home”

Written on: 18/11/2017 by LJInkpen (1 review written)

At the beginning of my career break year I wondered if I was making a huge mistake giving up my job and travelling the world. Security, after all is a wonderful thing. But as it turns out so is Adventure. Projects Abroad and all the staff and volunteers I met during both my trips with the company proved this fact a hundred times over. In Kathmandu, Nepal working on the Disaster Relief project to rebuild a school the work itself was physically hard no doubt. But the camaraderie amongst the… Read Full Review

“Public Health in Cambodia”

Written on: 16/11/2017 by gandersen (1 review written)

I was on the Public Health service trip to Cambodia, and I had a fantastic time. I was a little bit nervous beforehand, but there was a comprehensive orientation that covered the what we would be doing as well as a little bit of language and phrase teaching. The hotel was nice, and the food was good. I especially liked eating the local food, so I was a little bit disappointed when we went to more Western restaurants. The service aspect was also very educational and fun, and I learned a lot… Read Full Review

“Educational, professional, fun and rewarding ”

Written on: 14/11/2017

I spent six months in Belize on the marine conservation project., it still wasn’t long enough, the time flew by. I learnt so much about the marine world. I was already a diver before I went and gained further experience and qualifications which helped with all the diving for collecting data on the reef and fish. Other work included beach cleaning, lion fish hunting, catching and tagging turtles, going into schools to help educate the children on the importance of looking after the reef and… Read Full Review

“Life-Changing Summer!”

Written on: 14/11/2017 by lowrivirk (1 review written)

This summer my friend and I took spent two weeks in Peru with Projects Abroad at an animal rescue centre in the rainforest. I had absolutely no idea what to expect, however, being reasonably well traveled myself I thought it would not be dissimilar to my previous trips. I could not have been more wrong. I was completely and totally submerged into the forest with no contact to the outside world. At first, the prospect of the early starts, long hard work, basic living conditions without wifi or… Read Full Review

“Fiji Care Project; Two weeks ”

Written on: 14/11/2017 by KushLad (1 review written)

Excellent service of the care project provided by Projects Abroad. Staff were completely on hand in making sure that you had settled in and were comfortable. The project had been adapted to what I wanted from the project and also to my circumstances. I took my daughter with me, so the placements were selected suitable for my daughter to also participate and enjoy herself. There wasn't much in all honesty that I didn't like. The projects were informative and I was able to grasp a feel of Fiji's… Read Full Review

“Incredible experience in South Africa”

Written on: 10/11/2017 by Daz_Ahmed (1 review written)

I spent four weeks with Projects Abroad on their Law & Human Rights Internship in South Africa after coming across their page online; it was the best decision i ever made. Applied online, was contacted promptly and then getting on board was as easy it could be. Once everything was paid for, all the necessary stuff that I needed to know was e-mailed over (safety, accommodation, and day-to-day things). As a Law student, these four weeks enabled me a better understanding of the legal system and how… Read Full Review

“Agricultural Project- Argentina”

Written on: 05/11/2017 by CharlieW1991 (1 review written)

Projects Abroad allowed for an efficient and well-organised trip. Frequent communications between myself and the organisation allowed me to fully plan and prepare for the experience allowing me to really gain as much as possible from travelling to Argentina. Pre-discussions and web-links allowed all of my questions to be answered regarding a range of topics including packing, climate and intricate details such as flights. This detailed approach continued when I had to change my itinerary… Read Full Review

“My very (Nepal)easing experience with ProjectsAbroad”

Written on: 04/11/2017 by yiwenzhang (1 review written)

For my first independent trip abroad, I could not have asked for a better experience organised by ProjectsAbroad. I spent 2 weeks in summer doing the Care & Community Project in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. While experiencing a completely diverse culture to the UK, I encountered the hardship of a nation with poor infrastructure, proven by the long, rough journeys to school, which fulfilled my desire to volunteer in a developing country. In the first week of my project, we painted the… Read Full Review

“My Visit to Argentina!”

Written on: 27/10/2017 by Christabellaura (1 review written)

In 2017 I was lucky enough to visited Argentina, the city of Cordoba, on Young Farmers Travel trip last year for two week. I really enjoyed traveling as a group of Young Farmers members, I enjoy meeting new people and working with them. The highlights to my trip were in my first week, helping complete a vegetable garden at a primary school in the heart of Cordoba city. Bonding with the children in English lessons and lunch times, even passing notes through the classroom windows to the… Read Full Review

“An amazing experience!”

Written on: 26/10/2017

I was initially nervous after signing up for the high school special medical placement in Tanzania. After a slight mishap by myself and Kenya airways at the airport, I was initially put at ease to the African environment as I was greeted at Kilimanjaro airport by a wonderful representative and an incredibly funny bus driver. Needless to say after this the trip never had a dull moment from seeing incredibly touching scenes in hospitals to visiting waterfalls with my now lifelong friends. I can… Read Full Review

“Best month of my life!”

Written on: 25/10/2017

The Fijian villagers I stayed with this summer were by far the kindest, sweetest and funniest people I have ever met. Each day we met at least one new local, from the kindergarten age we were playing with in the mornings and their older siblings to the grandmothers and elders of the community, and each day we were welcomed into their homes as though we were long lost friends. Seeing how our contributions enriched the lives of everyone in the village of Komave gave me and the other volunteers a… Read Full Review

I really had the time of my life in Fiji! From the pick up at the airport to the very end of my 1 month stay Projects Abroad did an awesome Job! Airport pick up was punctual and well organised and the driver was very nice already introducing me to the new country, it's culture and vegetation. It wasreally great to have someone there waiting for you when you arrive at the Airport after a very long journey to the other side of the world. The host family was also very kind and caring.

“My great Projects Abroad experience in Ghana”

Written on: 19/10/2017

Firstly, I am so glad that I chose to do projects abroad UK and in Ghana. I had such an amazing time! I initially chose to work voluntarily abroad with projects abroad in Ghana as I thought that it would be a great opportunity for me to gain some experience in my chosen field of physiotherapy as a pre physiotherapy university student. Furthermore, for many years it had been my dream to visit Ghana- travelling to Ghana had been on my bucket list and a destination I desired since school. My… Read Full Review
