Volunteer Equatorial Guinea

 

Volunteer Equatorial Guinea


Two things affect the volunteer work project outlook in Equatorial Guinea. Firstly it has a population of just 1.356m (2019) and secondly it is sub-Saharan Africa's third largest oil exporter making for a thriving economy albeit a very unbalanced one with allegations that most of the country's wealth is siphoned off to line the pockets of the ruling elite. Indeed despite this wealth Equatorial Guinea remains in 145th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2019 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. 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.


Please note that many volunteer opportunities in Equatorial Guinea have been put on hold because of travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefuly they will be back up and running soon. In the meantime, if you run or know of a volunteer work project in Equatorial Guinea let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
