Volunteer & Sponsor Directory

African Volunteer Directory

Sign up here for your free listing in our African volunteering and sponsorship program directory here at the African Volunteer Network. We welcome applications from projects across Africa that work with volunteers in a range of settings from schools, community projects, hospitals, animals, conservation work and orphanages etc. or who offer regulated child sponsorship programs. We only ask for a few things in return. Firstly if the volunteer work is with children or you are listing a child sponsorship program, your project is committed to upholding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Secondly you operate in a non-discriminatory way. Staff here at the Network are volunteers in Africa themselves so we are under no illusions about working "on the ground" however we do expect our partner projects to act decently towards all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender or disability. In return we expect volunteers making contact with you through this directory to act in line with local custom and tradition when undertaking their volunteer experience or, if seeking to become a child sponsor, to realise that may be a longer term committment to a child.

Lastly before you sign up and take advantage of your free listing, this Network is for smaller African volunteer projects. So if you are one of the Big Guys stick to your advertising budget! If, on the other hand, you are a small project working on the ground, out in communities and need a helping hand, our directory is for you! If you provide us with sufficient information including photographs we'll even prepare your own featured listing page here at the African Volunteer Network to maximise your exposure. Again, no charge. Tell us about your volunteering or sponsorship project for your free listing here!
