If you’re looking into volunteering opportunities in Africa, rest assured you’re not the only one. Africa is becoming an increasingly popular volunteering destination. With that, trying to figure out where you want to go and what you want to do there can get a bit overwhelming since each one of the 54 countries is extremely different and unique. North through South - each of the continent’s regions possesses it’s own unique character. As diverse as Africa is, so are the opportunities for volunteers to get involved. But have no fear, good volunteer, we’ve prepared a short outline to help you through the process. 

Why Volunteer in Africa? Opportunities, Networking, and an Incredible Experience  

Africa is an amazing volunteering destination, in more ways than one. First and foremost, Africa offers countless opportunities - from wildlife preservation to volunteering with children in Johannesburg  -  you can easily find the specific project or role you’re interested in. What’s more, the fact that the great continent plays as an international crossroad and is versatile in its economic development means you’ll come across many NGO’s and Nonprofits - and their leaders. Networking your way through this experience can help make your journey even more meaningful. And most importantly? TRAVEL! Don’t forget about the extraordinary combination this region has to offer between culture, history, and nature. Jungles, beaches, and savannahs, spectacular wildlife, a combination of both history and modernity makes Africa an even more unforgettable travel experience. 

Where Should I Start? 

Start by zooming in on one specific region out of the five which Africa has to offer: North, West, Central, East, and South.  Generally speaking, the political stability of North Africa makes it a safe volunteer destination. If you are eager to work as a volunteer in human rights, or children-related causes, then West and East Africa would be a good place to start looking. A combination between rustic and urban can be found in South Africa, which is also considered to be politically stable. We encourage you to learn more about each region’s history, economy, culture, and nature - we promise you won’t have a dull moment. Then, work your way towards the cause that interests you: Working with children by teaching English language skills or tutoring, Developing Education and raising awareness to social and political aspects, healthcare, or sustaining nature and animals by means of wildlife conservation or eco-related organization.

Now that you have these two figured out, tackling the search process doesn’t seem too complicated, does it? Explore organizations, ask questions on our discussion board, and you’ll have a plan in no time!
