Program Overview

Program Description:
Become a teaching, healthcare, business development or construction volunteer in Vanuatu. This project works together with villages throughout Vanuatu to help provide basic needs while promoting cultural exchange. You can volunteer in Vanuatu for 1 week up to 1 month in duration, and we have places throughout 2014 & 2015. We also have longer term internship positions available for periods of 1 month up to 12 months.

This project works with volunteers to arrange a tailored programme that suits your individual skills; from education, cultural exchange, healthcare, environmental, building and manual work. Volunteers will stay in a village in Vanuatu and experience the culture and hospitality of one of the world’s friendliest people. Help change lives as you assist in a school or health clinic or with building and repair or skills development. A full list of the current volunteer projects in Vanuatu can be found on the WorkingAbroad website.

Vanuatu, located between Fiji and Australia, includes 83 islands known for their untouched beaches, active volcanoes and clear waters are a popular tourist destination in the South Pacific. Its friendly people have been voted the happiest people on earth. However, there exists another side to paradise in Vanuatu. The country is classified by the United Nations as a Needy Developing Nation and one of the 50th poorest nations in the world. Volunteers in Vanuatu work alongside a non-profit community association dedicated to cultural, community and business development in Vanuatu. This programme partners with Government, village chiefs and councils, business, schools, churches, community groups, families and individuals with the aim to bring awareness, intervention and solutions for some of the needs of the people of Vanuatu.
