Volunteer Algeria

Most volunteer work opportunities in Algeria focus on the 200,000 Saharawis from the Western Sahara who are living in four semi autonomous refugee camps in Algeria and are completely dependent on foreign aid as there is literally nothing in the region, except for the camps themselves; certainly no arable ground. Working in the camps is harsh and volunteers will usually stay with a host family during their time in Algeria so its a great opportunity to really get to know and understand the Saharawi way of life. The maximum volunteer period is three months ~ the length of a non extendable visa.

This volunteer work in Algeria is mainly teaching English

although, and particularly for those who can speak Arabic, there are also development work opportunities. Its very much down to the individual. The camps themselves are governed by Polisario, a Sahrawi rebel national liberation movement working to end Moroccan presence in the Western Sahara and effectively the Western Sahara's government in exile.

Potential volunteers to the camps should remain aware off the dangers and the increasing instability of the Sahel region. As such, volunteer opportunities may be curtailed when the volunteer work projects deem it unsafe to continue their work.
