LAOS / Global Vision International
Laos is one of the most traditional countries in Asia, and offers some of the richest culture and history of the region. Volunteering to work with local children in one of the country’s more historic regions is an incredibly rewarding opportunity to connect with the real Laos and its people. The volunteer project is based in Luang Prabang, a Unesco Heritage Site, which is known for its beauty, architecture and colour. Volunteers will spend their days working with local children through assisting Lao English teachers at schools and language centres, helping with pre-school children and assisting with or teaching extracurricular English course or tutoring programs.
Volunteers will have time off at weekends to explore the region and so can take a scenic boat trip up the Mekong to the Pak Ou Caves, watch the sunset from atop Mount Phu Si, swim in the Kuang Si Waterfalls, marvel at the many temples, trek, raft or take an elephant tour. This is the perfect way to explore one of the countries in Asia least tarnished by tourism.
