little food output there is. Volunteers who have worked in the country need to be Arabic, French, Hassynia, Pulaar, Soninke or Wolof speaking and historical projects, apart from the valiant work of the Red Cross who have mobilised food and water parcels during the recurring droughts and famines, have focussed on empowering girls and women in a state where modern day slavery and domestication of females is considered the norm.
Other volunteer work programs include building water projects, health care and developing sustainable farming
techniques to maximise yield. Mauritania is also one of the Africa's
newest oil producers so it will be interesting to see how the country develops over the coming years if it somehow resolves al-Qaeda operations.
If you run or
know of a volunteer work project in Mauritania let us know

to hearing from you!
