Why Volunteer in Africa? Can I make a difference?

Everyone has something to offer the project they visit as there is still so much need in Africa. Whether it is extra hands to complete a building project, a specific skill you want to share to simply acknowledging a vulnerable child’s existence, you can be confident you will make a big difference to the community you work with.

You have the opportunity to work at orphanages, schools, vocational training centres, women’s groups, centres for children with disabilities, hospitals, community development projects and environmental conservation projects. There is a minimum 1 month stay which is to ensure all volunteers are truly valuable to the project they work in. Internships are also available.

Whilst you are volunteering, you won’t forget the array of activities that can be done in Tanzania. On weekends or before/after your volunteering, you will find volunteers going on Day trips, safari, climbing Kilimanjaro, travelling to Zanzibar.
