UCD Volunteers Overseas
Projects Overseas



As part of the annual Volunteer Programme, UCDVO organises short-term, 4-week placements in India, Haiti, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Uganda. These placements are for one month and involve a variety of activities such as teaching English, physiotherapy, setting up computer labs and running sports camps for children. Volunteers have a unique opportunity to experience life in another part of the world while contributing their time, energy and skills to the efforts of host NGOs in implementing community development projects. Proposals are received from partner NGOs in each of the countries where UCDVO sends volunteers and projects are carefully planned in collaboration with the local community. UCDVO returns to the same areas each year and has built up strong relationships in each of the communities where volunteers work.

If you are interested in volunteering with UCDVO please review the Programme for the Year. Applications are not sought for specific project locations, however preferences and skills/experience will be taken into account at the interview and selection stage.
