Why volunteer in Uruguay?

In Tansania haben wir Freiwilligenprojekte und Praktikumsstellen in Kindergärten, Schulen, Krankenhäuser, Frauenhäuser sowie in Tierheimen und Umweltprojekten. Warum sich als Volunteer in Tansania engagieren? Wenn du in Tansania ehrenamtlich tätig bist, siehst du täglich wie dringend Hilfe benötigt wird. 

You can volunteer in Uruguay in two different areas: Rescue sea turtles and farm work.

The national language in Uruguay is Spanish. We therefore recommend that you start with a Spanish language course to get your stay in Uruguay off to a perfect start.

Leben als Volunteer im Projekt

In deinem Projekt wohnst du entweder direkt in der Projektstelle (Freiwillligenhaus) oder mit einer Gastfamilie. In einigen unserer Programme kannst du dich sogar entscheiden wo genau du wohnen möchtest. Wir sind für dich da und geben dir alle Informationen zu den unterschiedlichen Unterkunftsmöglichkeiten. Nutze die Chance und komniniere Projekte miteinander. Gerade unsere Kominationen verschiedener Projekte in einem Land oder auch länderübergreifend schätzen unsere Reisenden sehr. Kontaktiere uns einfach und wir beraten dich gern. Starte jetzt in dein Auslandsabendteuer!



All programs can be booked with friends. If you would like to book a program as a group, we recommend that you enquire in advance. Each person must book the project individually.

Ideal for all programs are at least three months in advance. In principle it is also possible for us to place short-term applicants (volunteering and language study travel) in Uruguay.

Uruguay is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Uruguay all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

In principle, no language course is mandatory in advance. However, depending on the volunteering program, certain levels of the language of your destination country may be required to complete the project. We would be happy to advise you individually on your chosen project.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.

For all programs you have to be covered by foreign health insurance. We will be happy to help you find a suitable insurance policy.

During the language school and in the volunteering projects, you will always have a direct contact person to help you with any problems. Of course you can also always contact us.
