COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERING PROJECTS IN AFRICA

Community Volunteer projects in Africa

Africa is full of diverse and beautiful people. Unfortunately, as a result of poverty, many of these people live in appalling conditions and face daily challenges.

African Impact seeks to alleviate some of these challenges by implementing and supporting volunteer projects throughout Africa. These projects are run with the help of committed volunteers and are ideal for those wishing to spend some time travelling abroad. Volunteers will be placed in local communities and spend time working directly with the people and immerse themselves in the culture of the area.

Whether you’d prefer to teach English, coach a sports team or work alongside healthcare professionals, as a community volunteer in Africa, the opportunities to change lives are endless.
