While GIVE’s Laos Volunteer Program is the perfect extension to our Thailand trip, it also stands alone as an off-the-beaten-path adventure into the rugged mountainous territory of this fascinating country. Your Laos volunteer opportunities will involve supporting remote villages on a variety of English education, sustainable agriculture and wildlife conservation projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to meditate with monks in a monastery, summit limestone peaks and explore hidden waterfalls. Come see for yourself why Laos is the best-kept secret in Southeast Asia!

Summit limestone peaks
Volunteer work in Laos means you’ll support a local NGO that protects Asiatic black bears, macaques and leopard cats from the illegal wildlife trade by helping to construct a new sanctuary that will hold more than 200 rescued animals! You’ll also volunteer teaching English in Laos to children, teens and adults in order to help prepare them for a world of educational and professional opportunities. Last but certainly not least, you’ll work hard on community projects; pick up a shovel and work alongside locals on our community-based organic farming projects.
GIVE’s Laos Volunteer Program takes you well off the beaten Southeast Asia path to explore the remote villages, meandering rivers, mountaintop vistas, idyllic waterfalls, elaborate temples, dense jungles and limestone caves that make this country so unique. Along with volunteer opportunities in Laos this one of a kind journey takes you hiking to the top of limestone peaks, swimming in the turquoise pools of Kuang Sii waterfall and learning about the ancient practice of meditation from Buddhist monks.
“This program changed my life in SO many ways. Laos is one of the most special places I’ve ever had the pleasure to see. Whether it is the unbelievable views, the wonderful food, or the incredibly humble and genuine people, this program has IT ALL.”
