Volunteer Excursions to Tibet
If you are a health professional, an adventurist or a student looking to make a difference while traveling, this journey is for you! Enjoy a balanced blend of cultural immersion and volunteer excursions to Tibet by staying with Tibetan families and volunteering in the local communities.
Volunteer activities include building greenhouses and working on community-based tourism projects like building hiking trails, constructing waste bins, offering project site clean ups and ‘Leave No Trace’ environmental ethics training. We organize small group journeys for about two weeks between May and October each year. Volunteers cover their own travel costs and expenses for the project, which can be raised through crowdfunding, grant applications and hosting fundraising parties. Contact us today to learn more.
- Dental Mission: We have been working with several dental service organizations such as Free to Smile and Kindness in Action who conduct an annual dental mission to Kham, eastern Tibet. Our team of 5-8 persons consists of dentists, orthopedic surgeons, dental hygienists, and support personnel. During each visit, we treated 125 to 175 patients through a local clinic and offer a dental camp in a Tibetan village. Please contact us for schedule.
- Water & Sanition: We work with individual volunteers and service organizations such as the Rotary Club to design and implement water and sanitation related projects. For example, the Rotary Club from the United States, Australia and China delivered clean drinking water, installed water filters and built waste management facilities in three different villages. Please contact us for schedule.
- Student Led Initiatives: Are you a high school or a university student who aspires to engage in responsible global citizenship? Are you ready to connect your classroom learning to experiences in the real world? Do you believe helping others enriches your experience? If so, we invite you to explore our Service Journey program to Tibet. Projects include improving the infrastructure of an orphanage such as a shower house and a courtyard and improving the kitchen sanitation in local communities.
