Those involved with running projects and other voluntary organizations know how difficult it is to obtain sufficient resources to undertake their work.  This includes resources of all kinds: funding, human resources, materials and thousands of people are anxious to donate their time and abilities but become frustrated because they don’t know where their talents are needed. At the same time, hundreds of African non-profit organizations are seeking competent volunteers to enable them to carry on their very important work.

Thousands of people are anxious to donate their time and abilities but become frustrated because they don’t know where their talents are needed. At the same time, hundreds of African non-profit organizations are seeking competent volunteers to enable them to carry on their very important work.

Go Volunteer Africa works in cooperation with grass-roots organizations in Africa. We support these organizations through recruitment of volunteers and grants to support their work and help increase their capacity. The organizations Go Volunteer Africa works with in Africa were established and are run by native residents. They existed prior to our involvement with them and run completely without interference from Go Volunteer Africa. Their main purpose is to support their local community: mainly children, youth and vulnerable adults.

Over the years since we formed, we have grown to incorporate new services to respond to the needs of our partners in Africa. We also offer accommodation reservations including hotels, bed and breakfasts, apartments, vacation rentals and other properties. We also offer reservations for rental cars, airline tickets, vacation packages and cruises. Go Volunteer Africa also sells international insurance, merchandise, flights and tour programs to the participants for generating additional revenue.

Go Volunteer Africa has presence in over 10 countries and we place volunteer travelers from different parts of the world, under several different projects. These programs are dedicated towards several social causes, such as Childcare, Street Children, Women Empowerment, Teaching, Wildlife Conservation, Orphanage, Youth Work, Sports, Healthcare and Rural Medical, and more.

There are internship opportunities for pre-med, medical, physiotherapy, dental, and journalism students. Our programs are a mix of volunteering, tours, safaris and cultural exchange where participants get to immerse in the local culture of the country they are volunteering in by staying with the locals and working with them on different projects.

Go Volunteer Africa is kind of a win-win situation for all, the volunteer travelers get to work on legitimate projects in Africa, gain valuable experience and the local communities benefit as they get volunteers to help and also gain monetarily as the funds are utilized in their communities.

ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH US:

We can provide you with substantial manpower support from international volunteers. We can refer individuals and groups of volunteers to your project!

You would need to designate a coordinator (counterpart) from your own team, who would ensure your volunteers are started in useful work on the day after arrival.

After seeing and experiencing at first hand the work that you do, some participants will want to establish a closer and ongoing relationship with you. This could develop into important support/donor relationship.

Effects & dependency

To all the organizations that Go Volunteer Africa works with, volunteers are an added value, never an essential part of the organization. Volunteers provide support, knowledge, time, energy and extras like personal attention but they are never indispensable. This way we prevent an organization from becoming dependent on international volunteers’ support as we want our partners to remain independent and strong without our support
