International Volunteers

Overseas Volunteers are always needed! Volunteering with us costs just £1500 including air fare, insurance and visa!

HANDS AROUND THE WORLD’s volunteers are encouragers and skill-sharers sent in response to needs expressed to us. They will normally be working alongside a local person, need to have a mature and sensitive attitude and be keen to discuss but also listen!

The kind of volunteers we are often able to place include, amongst others: people with foster caring experience, those with an interest in building and construction, classroom assistants, primary/junior teachers, occupational and physiotherapists.

Please note, we are looking for all sorts of volunteers, so do not be put off if your particular skills are not mentioned in our ‘most wanted’ list!

Our volunteers go for short-term placements (minimum 3 weeks, but ideally longer – up to 3 months, possibly more) in Africa and India.
