African Volunteering

 

African Volunteering


Okay we're not a great fan of the big African volunteering projects as they charge a fortune and little of that money, although not always the case, seeps through to the projects on the ground, rather lining the pockets of directors, staff and paying for plush UK based offices. That being said, they are also highly experienced and often a safer bet than parting with your hard earned cash to an organisation that may have ceased to exist by the time of your arrival. Here at the African Volunteer Network we showcase some of the big guns but, if booking with them, ask how much of your funding actually goes to help those in need. Just a thought!


If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Africa let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!




The Lighthouse Project

Volunteer Work Uganda


In a shameless bit of self-promotion, read this novel by the African Volunteer Network team about volunteering in Uganda. "Well worth the read especially for those working with non-profits abroad. In fact, it should be required reading."
