How to find volunteering opportunities in Mongolia
You can access these opportunities in two ways.
Your first option is to buy our Directory of Volunteering opportunities which lists these opportunities in a PDF. This gives you a document that is easy to search, and which you can use even when you’re not connected to the internet.
More importantly with the directory, you will also get a list of questions to ask to make sure you get the most out of your volunteering experience. We know how important it is to clarify expectations and to get a clear idea of what you’re signing up for before you volunteer. I know that there are opportunities we signed up for that didn’t end up being what we expected. A conversation with the hosts before we turned up would have helped us avoid a few uncomfortable situations. You can find our Directory of Volunteering opportunities abroad here.
The second option is to look for the opportunities below.
We consistently add new volunteering opportunities to each country so do check in regularly to find some great responsible volunteering opportunities abroad. We would also love your help in keeping this list up to date and useful. If you know of any other places that should be featured, or maybe you’ve visited a place and would like to share your story, please get in touch.
We really hope this information helps you volunteer abroad in a way that makes your travels feel meaningful and memorable.

Organisation: The Clean Environment
Location: Gobi Desert, Mongolia
Website: Tree Planting
The Gobi desert in southern Mongolia is growing at an alarming rate. Desert sands are spreading, not only toward the fertile grasslands and forests to the north, but even as far as Ulaanbaatar, the nation’s capitol.
Our mission is to help to prevent the sand from moving northward by planting as many trees as possible in Mongolia. We are a very small group with limited resources. Every person counts in this noble mission, and your help could make a big difference in preserving the world’s precious environment. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to come to Mongolia and physically participate.
