Volunteering in Malawi is a fantastic way for travelers to be able to give back to communities in need in a way not possible when just travelling through a country as a regular tourist. Our volunteer programs in Malawi have been running since 2010 and we have registered several successful sustainable projects.


By doing volunteer work in Malawi with Go Volunteer Africa, you are able to completely immerse yourself and learn about a new country and culture, and experiencing a completely a different adventure.  Both short term and long term volunteer placements are available as well as internship programs through formal training and hands-on work experience.

Go Volunteer Africa is working to provide quality, meaningful and affordable volunteer Malawi travel opportunities. We focus on needy communities of Malawi and working with disadvantaged children, youth and women, through provision of quality education, healthcare, access to clean water and community development projects.

Our volunteer Malawi travel program is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. If you choose to do volunteer work at our orphanage, schools, youth center or just to be part of our outreaches, you need to be adaptable, flexible and prepared to face and hear heartbreaking stories of the people’s backgrounds.

Because it is an immersion experience, days in the country allow for a variety of volunteer opportunities. And whether you work in a clinic, school, or children’s home, participate in building or agricultural projects, or simply assist in the day-to-day tasks. Go Volunteer Africa works closely with each volunteer to ensure comprehensive preparation, including both an understanding of the people with whom you will be working, and all considerations necessary for travel overseas.
