The African Impact Way


Our Mission and Values


Our mission is to deliver the best international volunteer experiences in Africa with long-lasting impact for both the communities we work in, as well as the volunteers travelling with us. The values that guide the way we operate as a company and interact with each other and our guests are explained as follows:
