Stan volunteering

Postby Will1981 » Tue May 28, 2019 2:44 am

Hey all,

I've got a couple of months in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan from July to September and I was hoping to do a little volunteer work (up to a week). Environmental/conservation work would be my preference, but I'm open to other suggestions. Any ideas, links or resources would be great.

Thanks!

I'm not sure you could actually do anything useful in a week. What are your qualifications/expertise in the field?

Have you looked at workaway? They do have a signup fee which is for a year, but they have listings for all Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, not Uzbekistan though

Thanks for your replies.

I don't have any specific expertise in this field. I generally just do days here and there when the opportunity presents itself; tree planting, beach clean-ups etc.

Thanks Nazrulo, those options look good. Will look into them further for sure.

Likewise with workaway.

You can check out WWOOFindependents.org if you are interested in working on (organic) farms. There are several hosts listed for the -stans and you can look at their profil even without registration (sometimes even contact them via phone/Skype). You get accommodation and food for your work. It was great opportunity to get to know great people and experience rural life in the countries we visit.
However, most hosts require you to stay at least for one week or even more, which also made sense for us as it takes some time to get acquainted and feel at home.
