Volunteer Tunisia

 

Volunteer Work Tunisia


Tunisia isn't exactly a hot spot for volunteer work in Africa not least because it is 98% Arab and Arab speaking and not exactly poor coming in at position 95 out of 189 countries and territories when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country in 2019. It was also ruled undemocratically by President Ben Ali until he was forced to flee to Saudi Arabia in what was known as the "Arab Spring" of 2011. The only real change since then as Tunisia emerges as a fledgling, hesitant democracy has been the fall in foreign income from tourism following the instability of 2011 from which the country has yet to recover. Most volunteer work in Tunisia, such as there is, tends to be met within Tunisia itself; i.e. just like in any other developed country where needs are identified they are met by volunteer groups arranging then deploying their own resources internally.One exception to this is the Tunisian Red Crescent who are primarily engaged in working delivering humanitarian aid around Tunisia's borders with Libya where the ongoing conflict within Libya is piling pressure on and around the border area.


Please note that the few volunteer opportunities in Tunisia 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 Tunisia, please 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."
