Based on the bank of the majestic Mekong River, the location of this program in the capital of Vientiane could not be more ideal. This program is one of our smaller programs which allows for a very personal and unique experience. Volunteers typically bike to and from their placements each day, and cruising through ‘les rues’ of Vientiane volunteers gain insight into the unique French influence of this South East Asian country. The projects available are Teaching, Childcare, Construction and Renovation as well as our rehabilitation based Medical project. The Laotian people are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and this gem remains untouched by mass-tourism making it ideal for travelers seeking a volunteer program off the beaten track.

See website for full program fee details.

Setting Description:
Volunteers are placed and accommodated within central Vientiane, which lies just on the border of Thailand and Laos. Guesthouse accommodation and traditional Laotian meals are ideal to support and nourish our hardworking volunteers.
Cost:
Starting from $270
