Very concerned father Jul 13, 2017

This is a glorified travel agency and nothing else. My daughter who is 17 'applied' for the two week High School program 6 days before it was to start. There was no screening of her what-so-ever, no parental consent needed, no background check before she received an email saying she had be...

Despite the amazing reviews from other volunteers of projects abroad, I am devastated to say I have a really horrible one. I was recommended by a friend about this volunteer agent and similar like others, I was expecting a good experience with them. I am a 16 years old international studen...

I have just returned after 8 weeks volunteering in Cambodia with projects Abroad and their chosen charity Khemara. I was horrified to learn that Projects Abroad was a profit making organisation, profiting from children who don't even own their own toothbrush. However this was my error as I...

I went to Ghana with Projects Abroad. I have been back for about 3 weeks. While the experience was interesting because I was in a large teaching hospital, I did not get to do any real volunteer work, ie making a difference. I was very disappointed and have told them how I felt. The whole s...

I am a nursing student and had been searching for a internship/volunteering opportunity to do over the summer, and when I first found Projects abroad it looked like the perfect organization, a great website, many "stellar" reviews, and the first few review sights I visited had virtually no...

Jess445 Jul 17, 2015

I would like to add to my previous complaint. Not only did they never refund my 3 grand, but the insurance company that I paid extra for them to organise for my trip is equally untrustworthy and disorganised. They are called "Endsleigh Insurance". After weeks and weeks of emailing back and...

Getting to the island was so scary. I was put on a bus with no other English speakers and told my trip would be 3 hours long, 8 hours later with no food we got to a beach where I was told to get out and ushered onto a small wooden boat that looked like it would sink. Luckily I survived the...

Very Concerned Parent Aug 5, 2014

com/complaints/projects-abroad-c462706. html As parents, we were SHOCKED at how little adult supervision there was on the programs. Our child went on a supposedly supervised program for 16-19 year olds, and we discovered that the Projects Abroad teens were on their own almost every night, ending up drunk at the local bars and discos 3-4 nights per week! We paid for the Projects Abroad meal plan, and learned that the first three dinners were (1) chocolate cake and hot chocolate, (2) bread, and (3) a slice of bread and spam...

My complaint is that Project Abroad fails to pay staff what they are worth. If anything, it profits on the backs of its workers, not the poor. The needy benefit from devoted staff and volunteers who work with them. I disapprove of Projects Abroad's exploitation of truly altruistic employee...
