Volunteer Cape Verde

Cape Verde, which is comprised of ten islands, isn't an obvious location for volunteer work projects not least, because unlike other African nations, only a very small percentage (7%) could be classified as poor and school attendance, especially at primary level, is pretty much universal. Despite this there are some volunteer work placements available mainly in the area of conservation and education regarding de-forestation.

Cape Verde has few natural resources so what it does have needs to be preserved and new resources are required to protect the islanders from the droughts that regularly affect the islands

In the last ten years alone 200,000 have died during these droughts which have affected food and water supply. Many more islanders have had to migrate to secure food and water supplies leading to more from Cape Verde now living abroad than on the islands themselves.

In the last few years many have moved away from the increasingly over burdened capital of Praia to rural areas where there is a lack of basic amenities such as sanitation. Volunteer opportunities mainly comprise of conservation work, helping to extract underground water supplies and in infrastructure building.
