Projects Abroad Turns 20!
Not everyone relishes getting older but at Projects Abroad we’re over the moon at turning 20 years old!
Projects Abroad was founded in 1992 with a small group of volunteers joining Teaching projects in Moldova. Two decades later and we now run projects in 28 destinations and annually support more than 8000 volunteers on our projects.
This landmark birthday marks yet another year of worthwhile projects and hardworking volunteers. We pride ourselves on our years of experience that have witnessed the following achievements:
|28||The number of developing countries that we work in.|
|50,000 +||The number of Projects Abroad volunteers to date.|
|40||The number of different nationalities of our volunteers.|
|320||The number of schools, language-centres and other organisations that have benefited from our Teaching projects. As well as Conversational English, volunteers have also taught French, German, Maths, Art, Drama, Music and IT!|
|280||The number of orphanages, disabled-centres and other organisations that have benefited from our Care Projects.|
|22,000||The number of children we’ve helped look after in over 100 orphanages.|
|10||The number of Conservation & Environment destinations we have.|
|600,000||The estimated combined number of Olive Ridley, Leatherback, Hawksbill, Loggerhead and Green Turtles we have protected on Conservation Projects.|
|47||The number of areas our Medicine volunteers work in, from Acupuncture to X-ray!|
Thank you to all of our volunteers past, present and future for making Projects Abroad the success it is today.
We look forward to many more years of providing worthwhile volunteering and internship projects overseas.
