Volunteer Work Guinea

Guinea, also known as Guinea-Conakry in order to distinguish it from Guinea-Bissau, is essentially a basket case after years of economic mismanagement and repressive rule, leaving it as one of the poorest countries in Africa standing at 182nd place out of 191 countries and territories in 2021 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country.

Despite its natural beauty, the nation has faced challenges such as military coups, ethnic conflicts, and human rights issues although in recent years, Guinea has made efforts toward democratic governance, holding multi-party elections and addressing social concerns.

Child trafficking is also a major issue in Guinea Conakry with thousands of street children in the capital being taken to Mali, Sierra Leone or the Ivory Coast for exploitation. For those who remain life is also grim with tens of thousands of AIDs orphans and overall just under one in ten children have been abandoned or orphaned and there are increasing levels of poverty. Against this backdrop there are few volunteer work opportunities in Guinea Conakry ~ it's as if the world has turned it back on this unstable and impoverished country. In fact the world pretty much has.

Please note what few volunteer opportunities there are in Guinea-Bissau were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic which led to the permanent closure of some volunteer opportunities and restrictions on others. Hopefully things are now beginning to return to normal. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Guinea-Bissau let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
