Volunteer Sao Tome and Principe
nation of Sao Tome and Principe (R.D.S.T.P.) is made up
of the volcanic islands of Sao Tome (860 km2) and of
Principe (104 km2) as well as some small, mainly
unpopulated rocky offshore islands some 150 miles off
the coast of Gabon.
islands have a population of just 163,000, so, as you
can imagine, there's not exactly a thriving range of
volunteer programs going on out there despite Sao Tome
and Principe being in 144th place out of 186 countries
and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life
expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living
standards of a country.
