INDIVIDUAL

If you are an individual who is seeking a new experience, to visit a new destination and want to meet new people a volunteering abroad placement with Kaya could be just the solution!

Individual Volunteers

At Kaya we provide accessible and exciting ways to experience life overseas as an individual volunteer, with conservation and community projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America.  Perhaps you look out of your window and wonder what life would be like on the other side of the world, but are waiting until you can persuade someone to explore it with you? Too many people don’t follow their dreams because they are worried about being a lone travel volunteer. Don’t miss out, let Kaya be your family and join one of our incredible volunteer projects abroad!

We pride ourselves on matching volunteers skills and interests to the goals and needs of the projects to ensure the best experience possible for you, the project teams and communities in which we work.  Spending time finding out about you to ensure that we find the project, accommodation and destination that best meets your requirements is important to us.  We know that everyone is different and have taken this into account in providing a range of arts, community, conservation, healthcare, teaching and business volunteering projects.

As an individual volunteer you can join Kaya projects year-round from 2 weeks to 6 months or more depending on what works best for you. Whether you are looking for a Career Break, are interested in taking a Gap Year, want to gain more work experience to support your studies or just want to do something different in your holidays, then Kaya is for you. We have a range of projects suitable for anyone between the ages of 16 to 74, and even some that are suitable for younger volunteers.

Most Kaya projects work with local initiatives that run year-round, so volunteers join on-going, sustainable work often with other volunteers and locals, so it is easy to meet new friends and be in good company.  You may also make friends that you can travel with at weekends.   You will develop self confidence, learn about new cultures, visit amazing sites as well as new skills. The projects themselves benefit from not only having an extra pair of hands but also the skills, experience and knowledge that volunteers bring to the individuals and communities in which they serve.

Whether you are a student looking for an internship to support your studies, taking a gapyear to explore the world, taking a career break to get away from it all and do something different we have a range of projects for you to choose from.  For our volunteers aged under 18 we have over 30 projects to choose from, and for our over 50s the majority of the Kaya projects are available.  Whatever your reasons for volunteering abroad and your age we have plenty to offer.

All of our projects accept individual volunteers so you are welcome to join us. If you’re unsure where to start take a look at our featured volunteering projects or alternatively contact one of Kaya’s advisors to find out how to make your dreams come true!
