Volunteer Seychelles

 

Volunteer Work Seychelles


Given that the Seychelles are made up of 115 different islands; an archipelago paradise that is home to a wide range of wildlife including giant tortoises with good outcomes for children and a buoyant economy based on on tourism and fishing, we had hoped there would be a number of volunteer work placements for us to go out and assess for the African Volunteer Network. This could hopefully take place over a period of months (maybe the UK winter period?) so we could interview in some depth the 97,625 (2019) population of the islands to get their views on the voluntary sector and its impact on the islands.



As it is, whilst there is a thriving volunteer sector based around conservation, the projects who operate there receive more requests for volunteer placements than they could ever meet and therefore restrict themselves to volunteers of the highest calibre both in terms of outlook, skills and experience. Most projects are also looking for medium to longer term volunteers (minimum of four months) as the work revolves around the project not the needs of the volunteer. Most volunteer project work is also shared by word of mouth so we have few openings to publicize here. These projects focus on community empowerment and working with HIV/AIDS amongst other areas.


Please note that many volunteer opportunities in the Seychelles 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 the Seychelles let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!

Volunteer Work Uganda


In a shameless bit of self-promotion, read this novel by the African Volunteer Network team about volunteering in Uganda. "Well worth the read especially for those working with non-profits abroad. In fact, it should be required reading."
