How your Volunteer Fee is Used:

Volunteer tourism, or ‘voluntourism’ as it is popularly known, is loosely defined as a holiday in which you give back to the land you are visiting; contributing to either community development or conservation. But it’s so much more than that. Voluntourism encompasses a new trend of responsible tourism, where travelers are making informed and responsible choices and planning trips which don’t negatively affect the country or communities they are visiting. When volunteering, it is critical that travelers choose a volunteer organisation or charity with a proven ethos and philosophy around sustainable and responsible tourism practices. This applies both to their work with local communities, wildlife and our volunteers themselves.

African Impact is proud to have a 10 year track record of facilitating responsible volunteer programs in Africa, providing 24 hour support and guidance for volunteers and offering on-going support to communities in need. Understandably, these operations cost money to run and this is where the volunteer fee comes in.

Work & Impacts

You will spend 2-6 months living at our project base in the town of Livingstone, Zambia. Volunteers from around the world travel to take part in a number of short-term community development volunteer programs, including our Girl Impact project, which focuses around 6 key areas (or Pillars) that empower young women.

Interns support this work by assisting our teams on the ground to develop new programs, monitor and evaluate our existing programs, and gain exposure to real gender equality issues in a developing African country.

 

Implement the 6 pillars

Implement the '6 Pillars'

During your placement, you will be working on a number of existing initiatives that are based around our 6 pillars; education, health, safety, income generation, early pregnancy and self-confidence.

This will include our adolescent gender empowerment program (AGEP), which aids in the development of girls aged between 10 and 16, as well as working with a women’s group to teach skills and income-generation techniques. 

Develop new programs

Develop New Programs

Using the 6-pillar framework, you will use your time and passion to develop new programs to empower young women. We love for our interns to share their skills with the girls we work with, including backgrounds in confidence-building activities, self-defense, or even dance as a form of self-expression!

It is also essential to include boys in all of our programming, so your role will include developing a framework for how to include more boys in our outreach.

Monitoring and evaluation

Monitoring and Evaluation

Measuring our impact is key to the success of our program. By conducting evaluations, testing and surveys on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, we will be able to collect valuable data to monitor the progress of the participants.

 

Other duties and learnings

Other Duties and Learnings

  • Interns are required to submit a weekly journal entry, as well as a final reflection, which demonstrates growth, including professional and personal development over the course of the internship. Each week you will also meet with your mentor to discuss the week’s activities, your highs and lows, and what you have overcome. This will give you the chance to discuss your strengths and weaknesses so we can help you learn what to focus on moving forward

 

  • You will also get involved in fundraising activities to generate donations for the program and our focal projects, including our Sponsor a Child initiative.

 

  • Being able to share success stories on social media is a huge contributor to awareness of our program and helps to create knowledge of gender equality issues as a whole, so as an intern you will be responsible for sharing information about our initiative on various social media platforms, including The Girl Impact website. We will support you in collecting information, teaching you how to use this practically on the ground to share in a clear message worldwide.

Fun & Travel

Things to do in your spare time

Relax

Relax

During your stay at your “home” in Livingstone, the Livingstone Backpackers, you have the opportunity to play volleyball with the locals, explore the variety of restaurants and bars in town, have a “movie under the stars night”, and braai with your group of new friends. The backpackers has beautiful big swimming pool and bar area which is a great place to relax after a hard days work.

Victoria falls

Victoria Falls Adventures

Livingstone is your ticket to adventure. Take advantage of your proximity to the great and mighty Victoria Falls, as well as the other adventures the Zambezi has to offer. Zambezi boat cruises, river safaris, white water rafting and canoe trips are all ways in which you can encounter these great waters. You can also ride quad bike trails or view the scenery from the air in a microlight or helicopter.

For the adrenaline junkies, why not try the famous bungee jump or gorge swing?

Go on safari

Go On Safari

Livingstone, Zambia is safari country. Here, you can spot a whole lot of wildlife, do rhino bushwalks or even take a boat safari to spot elephants off the Zambezi River. You can also go on weekend outings to the world-famous Chobe National Park, which is across the border in Botswana.

Cultural tours

Cultural Tours

Although you will be spending time in the community, you will also be able to embark on a cultural tour to a local African village, giving you further insight into another way of life. You can also shop at some of the many markets and stock up on locally hand-made goods for your loved ones back home.

Livingstone, Zambia

About the Destination

Livingstone, Zambia is a beautiful, rural town that many call “the real Africa.”  Just a stone’s throw away from one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World - Victoria Falls - Livingstone is the ultimate playground for those who love adventure sports, wildlife and the great outdoors.  Whether you bungee jump, swim in the 'Devil’s Pool', feed some crocodiles, white water raft down the mighty Zambezi or just enjoy a breath-taking sunset, you will experience things that only Livingstone can offer!  Don’t worry, you will certainly not miss out on wildlife. There are many national parks where you can observe lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, elephant and giraffes and often, we spot some of these animals along the road on our way to project!

As Livingstone intern, you will be fully immersed in the rural community every day, but will be based in a private volunteer house within the popular and welcoming Livingstone Backpackers. You will have access to a lovely swimming pool, hot tub, lounge and bar area and if that wasn’t enough, a full climbing wall as well!  Your accommodation is a 5 minute walk away from Livingstone's town center, which has many stores and a great selection of bars and restaurants.

Whether you're interning abroad to gain work experience during your gap year, looking to take a career break or just want a new challenge, Livingstone is the place to be!
