Welcome to our Alumni Network

Reality kicks in and while it’s incredible to see your family and your friends from home, it’s hard to imagine not waking up next to your fellow volunteers and experiencing all that the amazing continent of Africa has given you. But, you’re not the only one. You’re not the only one feeling transformed.
It’s why we created an alumni network – for you to keep in touch with the African Impact family and connect to a community of like-minded people from around the globe who understand the power of good volunteering.
