Choose The Mighty Roar

I had a great experience in India as a volunteer with the Mighty Roar! I was there with my gf and we had an outstanding time in Jaipur. I was teaching and my gf was practicing as a doctor at one of the hospitals. It was a great challenge but we learned a lot. And Rahul, Tanu, and Guarav have been... Read More

The Mighty Roar

Just returned from 4 weeks volunteering in the childcare programme in Jaipur and would do it again in a heart beat. I was met at the airport by Rahul and this was swiftly followed by a text from Chris checking I’d arrived safely. Accommodation was not as basic as I was led to believe - AC, Wi-F... Read More

Overview & Structure

The Asia Experience starts on the first Saturday of every month throughout the year, but alternative dates can be considered on request. You are welcome to choose the trip duration that is suitable for you, with the option to travel for 6, 9 or 12 weeks.

Should you choose the 6 week option then you will spend 2 weeks volunteering and travelling in each country; Sri Lanka, India and Bali. In the same vein, if you choose the 9 week option then you will spend 3 weeks in each country and finally the 12 week option will see you spend 4 weeks in each country.

When travelling across Asia you will meet plenty of other travellers and volunteers, with the numbers and types of people you encounter changing from country to country. If you’re looking for a social experience where you’ll make lots of new friends, then this is the trip for you.

You can choose any of the volunteer programmes listed further below for each country and once you have applied we will be in touch to confirm exactly what you wish to do. Please note, some volunteer projects may be subject to availability.

Once you have signed up you will then also be able to request organised weekend trips within each country through your My Trip account. You can read all about what weekend trips are on offer and what dates they run further below within each country section.

You will be responsible for organising your flight schedules to each country and although this may seem complicated at first, rest assured we are on hand to provide all of the assistance required. 

Volunteering in Sri Lanka

Your first stop will be Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is our most popular destination and literally has it all! From the famous stunning coastlines with golden sand and crystal clear waters to the rolling lush green tea plantations in hill country. This somewhat undiscovered island has something for everyone, with sacred temples enriched with history, national parks packed with wildlife and the endless stretches of beautiful beaches.

All of our volunteering programmes are located together and are based just 10 minutes away from the famous backpacker town of Hikkaduwa. You will be living right on the beach, where you can snorkel, enjoy the spacious accommodation and experience the true way of life in Sri Lanka. You can read all about each programme that you can volunteer on by clicking on the below links.

Sri Lanka Sea Turtle Conservation (+£75)
Sri Lanka Street Dog Rescue (+£75)
Sri Lanka Childcare Volunteers
Sri Lanka Teaching Volunteers
Sri Lanka Medical Experience (+£100)
Sri Lanka Mental Health Experience (+£100)

As well as volunteering on rewarding programmes you will also have the option to travel and explore Sri Lanka and even head over to the Maldives during your free time. You can read all about our organised weekend trips here.

Volunteering in India

Your second stop will be India. Few countries in the world carve such a deep, lasting impression on a traveller as India does. Be stunned by the richness of the land, it’s lush beauty, exotic architecture and by its ability to overload the senses with the intensity of its colours, smells, tastes and sounds. Get ready to experience chaos, with a trip full of the unexpected. 

Based in Jaipur in the heart of the famous Golden Triangle, you will have ample opportunities to see everything India has to offer. Walk the crowded streets of Delhi, see the iconic Taj Mahal, party on the beaches of Goa or stay closer to home and see Amber Fort and Hawa Mahal.

This is your chance to help make a difference to underprivileged communities while exploring a fun, vibrant and fascinating country. Our projects have been created to assist and help those in most need. From teaching in under resourced government schools, looking after children in overstretched kindergartens or to providing an extra pair of hands in a rural slum clinic, you can be sure that your time will be greatly appreciated. You can read all about each programme that you can volunteer on by clicking on the below links.

India Childcare Volunteers
India Teaching Volunteers
India Medical Experience
India Special Needs Childcare Volunteers

As well as volunteering on rewarding programmes you will also have the option to travel and explore India during your free time. Hit the road and explore everything the Golden Triangle has to offer (including the Taj Mahal) or party or relax on the famous beaches in Goa. You can sign up for a structured weekend trip that you can read all about here.

Volunteering in Bali

Your final stop will be Bali. The tropical paradise of Bali offers an unending list of soft white sandy beaches with beautifully clear turquoise waters. Beyond the stunning beaches, Bali has virtually every kind of beauty you can think of. Mystical temples steeped in culture, mountainous areas with lush greenery, scenic lakes, gorgeous waterfalls and iconic rice terraces. Get set for a never ending adventure, where making new friends is easy!

Our volunteer programmes are based in the small fishing village of Tianyar, in the north of the island. Far away from the urban development and explosion of tourism, this is your chance to see the real Bali and experience their true hospitality and culture. There’s no point coming to an exotic island like Bali and not live life on the beach! You'll wake up to the sea views every morning, with the palm tree's swaying and the waves gently crashing down besides your feet.

Bali Childcare Volunteers
Bali Teaching Volunteers
Bali Marine Conservation (+£140 per week)

You'll have long weekends to explore, whether that be heading around the main attractions or hopping aboard a boat to check out the nearby islands. One thing is for sure, they will be filled with fun adventures in the jungles, along the beaches and up the mountains with your new friends.

Diving into marine conservation in Bali

  • January 2024
An unforgettable three week volunteering experience helping on the marine conservation project in Bali. Through my time spent in this mesmerising tropical paradise, I immersed myself in the world of scuba diving, coral reef conservation and the vibrant culture of the island. I would wholeheartedly recommend this endeavour to any traveler with a love for exploration, a passion for animals, an affinity for sun-soaked shores, and an unwavering desire for fun. I had the best time of my life and would highly recommend, 10/10 experience!

Oliver's story

The best experience in Sri Lanka

  • January 2024
In April, I went to Sri Lanka on the 2 week Travel and Volunteer experience and had the BEST time! The experience was the perfect idea as it meant I could take part in a meaningful project while still getting to explore the beautiful country of Sri Lanka on my holiday from work. It was my first time travelling completely by myself and the team, both in the UK and in Sri Lanka, made it really easy for me. If you're in any doubt of going on a trip with TMR, this is your sign to do it! I'm so grateful to the whole team who gave me this incredible experience.

Katharine's story

Making Artificial Reefs In Bali

  • November 2023
Where do I start with Bali, I came into this not really knowing what to expect but let me tell you, I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life. I did marine conservation for 2 months which seems like a long time but time flies by to the point that 2 months is just not enough. Bali is a beautiful country with great people, amazing food, breathtaking views and many fun opportunities. I can’t recommend it enough.

Nicholas's story

An action packed 2 week adventure exploring Bali

  • August 2023
When I heard about this travel experience I knew this was something I was interested in. As a 17 year old going to the other side of the world, myself and family were slightly worried, but I had the most unforgettable time and met some amazing people along the way. From eating some amazing food, having my first surf lesson and visiting temples, I will never forget this once in a lifetime experience.

I spent two amazing weeks in Sri Lanka and I loved every moment.

Olivia's story

Volunteering in Sri Lanka at 17 years old

  • April 2023
In April I spent two weeks volunteering in the turtle conservation program in Sri Lanka. At only 17 I was terrified to travel so far on my own, but it ended up being some of the best few weeks of my life! Sri Lanka as a country is incredible - the people are so friendly, the lifestyle is very relaxed and the food is amazing! The mighty roar team in Sri Lanka could not have been more welcoming, anything we needed help organising would be sorted straight away. This experience was a trip of a lifetime for me and hopefully I will go back one day!
