Volunteer Work Africa
Welcome to the African
Volunteer Network. Searching online for volunteer opportunities
abroad in Africa can be confusing as you will find many adverts
offering all sorts of volunteer programmes and jobs from
teaching to working with animals. Be careful though, as many of these adverts are for big, for profit, businesses who take a large cut of your volunteer fee to pay for their advertising, plush offices
and staff in UK cities.
The African Volunteer
Network is run and managed by volunteers who have worked
and continue to work in Africa and is a directory of volunteer
and charity work
programs run and managed locally in Africa itself.
No-one pays to be listed here and any money you pay for
your volunteer experience goes 100% to the project
itself and the community within which it operates.
But the African Volunteer
Network isn't just a directory of Africa volunteer
work programmes and jobs, its an online community where you can share
experiences, tell others what worked and what didn't,
advice and tips, as well as a forum for discussing
issues, finding jobs in Africa and even placing adverts
for projects and products of interest to the volunteer
So, if you're an African
volunteer project offering safe volunteer and/or
charity programmes, claim
your free listing at the Network here. Volunteers looking for work opportunities can browse our listings by country below or follow our Facebook page.

volunteering because you're amongst friends who work out
