volunteer in maldives


Located just south of the Indian subcontinent, the Maldives are a spectacular chain of islands consisting of 26 atolls. Its crystal blue waters teem with exotic marine life and its sandy white beaches are a beach lovers paradise. The island has enchanted backpackers, honeymooners, and families for decades. The country is sought after not only for the wide ranging adventure activities such as scuba diving, kayaking, or sea turtle spotting but also boasts a rich history as showcased in its museums and monuments in the capital Male. Volunteering in Maldives will be nothing short of spectacular.

Although we offer a wide range of volunteer programs in the Maldives, most center around the conservation of its fragile marine ecosystem. The coral reefs and the underwater life has been badly affected by global warming and recent construction activities to accommodate the influx of tourists. The need of the hour is to protect this heavenly marine habitat by supporting local conservation and rehabilitation efforts. Also, inhabitants of the country are less exposed to other cultures and traditions, so teaching kids and sharing your life experiences is a valuable contribution to our volunteering in Maldives programs.
