Just Volunteers! was established in 2009 by Josephine Chesterton who has worked in East Asia for nearly forty years, in banking, academia and most recently in the NGO world. We work with small independent charities in China (including Hong Kong), Malaysia and Mongolia. In some cases we just find short-term, full-time volunteers who work for our partner organizations. In others we have joint projects.
