Map of China

With over 40 countries from Japan to Thailand to Pakistan, Asia provides an incredible diversity of learning and service opportunities for international volunteers. China and the former Soviet nations of Central Asia seek volunteer English teachers. India offers dozens of direct service and sustainable development volunteer opportunities. Even countries that used to be somewhat closed to outsiders, such as Mongolia and Vietnam, now welcome volunteers in health, education, and economic development. —Volunteer Abroad Editor, Zahara Heckscher in Volunteer in Asia
