Short Term Volunteering
Are you ready to take on the six week experience of a lifetime??
Our Short Term Volunteers work on projects that are not only sustainable, but strengthened our links and working partnerships in Africa, meaning that the projects will continue years after our volunteers have left.
The six week Summer Volunteer program runs in June/July allowing students, typically those who have completed at least one year of university, to travel to Africa to Zambia, South Africa or Tanzania.
Once a prospective volunteer has been offered a place on the programme, they will undergo training tailored to the country that they are to visit, allowing them to build an awareness of that country’s needs and fundraising advice to ensure they reach their target.
If you would like to volunteer on the six week program, download our Application Form and return it either by email or by post to our address.
Long Term Volunteering
If you wish to volunteer longer
Long Term Volunteering work on site in Africa is generally for at least one year, although we are currently willing to accept volunteers for a minimum of five months. We accept volunteers from various vocations be it builders, engineers, plumbers, teachers, social workers, nurses or doctors, provided they have a recognised qualification.
We send our volunteers to answer the needs in Africa and since we work closely with the people in each country we are able to send out appropriately skilled volunteers to fulfill each of the three countries needs.
This is an amazing opportunity, one which all of our volunteers have thouroughly enjoyed. If you’re interested in getting involved download our application form, indicating at the top that it is Long Term Volunteering you are interested in and return it either by email or by post.
