Kyrgyzstan is a central Asian country known for it’s natural beauty and semi-nomadic yurt style of living.
This is a one month placement offering you the chance to immerse yourself in the culture by helping to coordinate and run a holiday camp for children and young people. You will take part in a variety of activities from teaching English to playing sports. The placement usually takes place in August allowing you the opportunity to volunteer while still studying.
- Volunteers will live in tents, following the local style of living, and will be expected to help with the meal preparation.
- We ask you to contribute £450 towards the cost of your ticket. You will also need around £400 to cover the cost of visa, vaccinations, insurance and personal spending money. We can help you with applying for grants towards this.
- There will be 2 days of training in London beforehand that will provide useful preparation for your time away.
The camp atmosphere and community feeling was brilliant. I really miss the simplicity of life. It really highlighted for me how overly complex we make things in the UK. (Will, volunteer 2017) Click To Tweet
