Perhaps someone already mentioned this, but there are TONS of paid English teaching jobs in Asia. It's not volunteering, but you can work in rural or urban areas, and meet people of various backgrounds, plus you can do volunteer work on the side (teaching poor kids for free, for example). I've done it since 2000, and taught everyone from doctors and nurses to kindergarten kids- and made some good friends along the way. If you really want to get to know the people and way of life of Asia, this is one of the best ways. And you can save money, for your next trip! ;)

Hello!
I'm looking for free or budget volunteering possibility in midwifery. I don't have any experience but I'll study that so I'd like to get some practice. Maybe somebody knows, is it possible just to get to india or to any neighbor country and just look for volunteering by being there?

Under Thai law you are rquired to have a work permit to do ANY sort of work in Thailand - paid or unpaid.

so make sure the p[eople you are working for have got this sorted - either legally or by "permission" from the local immigration.
