Volunteering opportunities and programs related to Anthropology. – Anthropology is the study of humans and their societies, exploring everything from ancient civilizations to modern cultures. It seeks to understand our origins, behaviours, beliefs, and the diverse ways we live and interact. Anthropologists conduct research, often through fieldwork, to learn about customs, languages, traditions, and social structures. This knowledge helps us appreciate cultural diversity and offers insights into human evolution, relationships, and societal changes. By studying anthropology, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and others, fostering respect for different ways of life and contributing to the broader understanding of humanity’s shared history and future.
This page features volunteer projects suitable for students, travellers, and researchers with a keen interest in or expertise in Anthropology.

Some of these volunteer projects offer free placements, meaning they provide food and accommodation at no cost to volunteers. (However, note that travel expenses, such as visa fees and airfare, are typically not covered). Additionally, there are projects that may require volunteers to contribute a small fee towards their food and lodging expenses. This is because not all host organizations can fully cover these costs. If you have limited time for volunteering, like one or two weeks, we recommend considering fee-based projects. Your monetary contribution can have a more significant impact during your volunteer experience.
Voluntouring is not a tourist agency; we don’t charge intermediation fees. This ensures that all your financial contributions directly support the organization or community you’ll be assisting.
