Volunteers are needed in Myanmar to work on a range of projects. 

We're particularly keen to hear from volunteers with education and healthcare backgrounds as well professionals who can support gender equality and social inclusion programmes. 

In Myanmar, VSO works across different states, regions and divisions, with community, national and international volunteers partnering with colleges, government ministries and local and international NGOs. 

Myanmar is an extraordinary country that is going through a period of rapid change and transformation. There is huge enthusiasm for engaging with the outside world after years of isolation, and an optimism and huge expectation of change following the elections in November 2015.
