Nearly three quarters of the population live under the poverty line whilst the offshore oil industry engages mainly foreign workers leaving the local population to live off subsistence farming without access to electricity, basic education or heath care facilities.
As advised there are few volunteer work placements in Equatorial Guinea and
those that do exist focus on caring for orphaned children and promoting access to education, nutrition and health care as well as family strengthening.
If you run or
know of a volunteer work project in Equatorial Guinea let us know
by contacting us here. We look forward
to hearing from you!
