If there is already a thread for this, I apologise.
I just wondered if anyone knew of any great volunteer abroad projects that can be organised directly with the placement provider?
For example, I volunteered at the Costa Rica sloth sanctuary last year and contacted them directly to arrange it. In doing so, I saved approximately £1500 than if I had paid for it via the big sites like gapyear or projectabroad.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

How old are you? National Citizens Service is a scheme run by the government for 15 - 17 years. Their volunteer opportunities are free. You just need to fundraise. I think you need to raise £700, after which they pay for everything else including flights and accommodation.

You can work as a volunteer for non-governmental organizations in some countries in Asia. Actually, they are very popular around the world.
