Working and volunteering


Official opportunities to volunteer are limited. Don't let this sway you. Everyone in Myanmar wants to learn English, and few can afford to. Ask in towns or villages to sit in at an English class.

A list of NGOs that may have volunteering opportunities can be found on www.ngoinmyanmar.org, although mostly its postings are for specific experienced workers (often in medicine). You can also browse the links at Burma Volunteer Program (http://burmavolunteers.org).
