Volunteering in Malaysia… for independent travellers!
Some of these opportunities are completely free (you receive free food and accommodation in exchange for voluntary work – wwoof style). Others require a daily/monthly contribution fee for the food. Remember that many areas in Malaysia are still underdeveloped and volunteering can’t be a ‘free’ thing.
If you want to have an “impact” but you only have a few weeks to do volunteering abroad, then we recommend you to choose the paid opportunities: you will improve the local community not only with your skills but also with your money, which is better than paying for a “western hotel” or touristic village, usually owned by foreign corporate interests .
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 NGO or the localhost. This is also why you will find that the fees for the volunteering experiences, when requested, are much lower than the ones offered in other professional agencies.
Insurance and Visa costs are usually not included in any of these opportunities
