Go Volunteer Africa was founded by volunteers from the Africa and United States who had become infuriated at the difficulty and expense of volunteering in Africa despite the range of opportunities available.
Our objective is to help more people gain the life changing, life affirming experiences that volunteering in Africa can give. We are committed to enabling skill transfer, enabling organizations in Africa to access different skill sets and to helping volunteers realize the value they can add using the skills they hold.
Go Volunteer Africa is a specialist organization facilitating the placement of skilled and unskilled volunteers to Africa. Simply, we match skill with need, ensuring through comprehensive research that our volunteers are placed with projects that need their unique expertise – whether it is gardening skills, professional marketing, office administration or teaching. Through our volunteers we aim to make a sustainable impact on developing communities across Africa.
Furthermore, we hope our volunteers will become responsible global citizens as a result of their experience with Go Volunteer Africa, promoting the need for social change and raising awareness in their home communities about what Africa can teach us. Go Volunteer Africa enables people from around the world to share their skills and expertise, welcoming applications from all, regardless of age or experience.
We facilitate placements for one or more people, for a minimum of one week and can secure the placement within 24hrs of receiving your enquiry. We offer placements that will either utilize skills you hold already or give opportunity to learn new skills. We will match your skills and expectations with those of your host organization to ensure your placement is a professionally, as well as a personally, rewarding experience.
This is achieved through our rigorous application process, and in depth research into potential host organizations to assess what is needed and what the volunteer can expect.
