Volunteering opportunities in the Maldives
A trip to the Maldives is usually synonymous with resorts and relaxation and evokes pleasant sensations of a distant paradise of white sand, turquoise waters and untouched coral reefs. But one can discover these islands not only as a tourist but also as a volunteer, through volunteer projects promoted by the local NGOs. This will allow you to stay away from mass tourism and perhaps, by living close to a fishing village, it will be surprising to come into contact with locals’ everyday life and discover their traditions.
Volunteer opportunities in the Maldives mostly take place at a slow pace and alternate moments of commitment, hard work and effort with sensational excursions and snorkelling trips: the coral reef here is incredible, rich in colourful corals and shoals of many varieties of fish. Volunteering in the Maldives can be a wonderful and rewarding discovery!

Volunteering opportunities in the Maldives… for independent travellers!
Some of these opportunities are free (you receive free food and accommodation in exchange for voluntary work). Others require a daily/monthly contribution fee for the food and the accommodation. Remember that many areas in Southern India are still developing and volunteering can’t always be a ‘free’ thing.
Our website, Voluntouring, is not a touristic agency and is not taking any agency intermediation fees from the organizations listed below. For this reason, all of your money will go directly to support the NGOs and your stay in the Maldives. This is also why you will find that the fees for the volunteering experiences, when/if requested, are generally much lower than usual.
