Teach English in Vietnam
Participants have the chance to teach alongside Vietnamese teachers and be immersed in the local culture; allowing you to explore Vietnam in a way that a regular tourist cannot. Vietnam is culturally diverse and has some of the world’s more visually stunning landscapes. There are modern cities and laid-back beaches. The people are very friendly, and the history of the nation is fascinating. Not to mention the food this is simply amazing! Included in the program is a 100 hour TEFL Certificate from the University of Toronto that will provide you with the necessary teacher training needed to plan lessons and teach conversational English; providing you with valuable international teaching experience, and the certification needed should you chose to apply for paid positions following your volunteer placement.

Butterflies and Bees in the Indian Himalayas
The apple orchards of the Indian Himalayas are losing ground to climate change. Your observations of plants, bees, and butterflies may help protect the region’s sustainable agriculture. India’s Kullu Valley, nestled among the Himalayan Mountains, is famous for its apple orchards and farms. As climate change affects the region, however, flowering plants once plentiful in the region are becoming scarce due to biodiversity loss.

Traditional Farming in Gerkhu
This is one placement for volunteers who are interested in getting back to nature. Most rural villages still follow the same ways of farming that they have done for hundreds of years. So be prepared for hard work at certain parts of the year and on others you will experience as easier time. The main aim though is the experience of a culture that takes a small % of the modern day lifestyle and adapts it to work in this rural environment.
