Volunteer Botswana

Unlike many other nations in Africa, Botswana is relatively wealthy not least because its the world's largest diamond producer and that wealth is for its modest population of just two million. Whilst poverty is evident, particularly in rural communities, the real problem facing Botswana is the rampaging HIV/AIDS epidemic which has left nearly one hundred thousand children in the country orphaned with over 15,000 children aged under 15 yrs infected themselves.

It is also estimated that 25% of all adults have the virus. And therein lies the problem in Botswana. It may have relative wealth, but it has too many orphaned children and too few adults to care for them.

And money can't buy parents. As such, much of the volunteer work in Botswana is about supporting orphanages and helping to build stronger families; and also supporting those families which are headed by a child themselves after the parents have become too ill to provide care or have passed away. Other projects focus on infrastructure for rural communities where safe water and hygiene facilities are scarce leaving both adults and children alike exposed to waterborne diseases such as bacterial diarrhoea, hepatitis A, and typhoid fever. Other volunteer work opportunities include conservation and animal welfare work.
