About Laos

Laos is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia. The landscape of Laos entails mountains, fertile plains with emerald rice fields, and templates, witnesses of its past. It is famous for its ethnically diverse population and the cultivation of rice. The economy of Laos is mostly agricultural and still dependent on foreign aid and investment. The beauty of Laos attracts more and more travellers each year.

Volunteering opportunities in Laos

Discover essential volunteer work in Laos. By choosing humanitarian trips in Laos, you choose to help the most vulnerable populations, such as children and the elderly. International volunteers can support communities by teaching them skills for long-term development. These skills help advance in sustainable agriculture, natural resource management, and hygiene. The goal is to improve their living conditions and strengthen local structures. Freepackers suggest teaching volunteer projects and volunteer construction projects.
