Go Volunteer Africa is the leading and largest volunteer travel operator in Africa. We vet and categorize our projects, providing volunteers with programs that match their needs and interests.
We believe that travel with purpose opportunities will have a positive impact around the world. In January of 2009, Go Volunteer Africa set out to change the tourism industry. Providing humanitarian and conservation opportunities to people who want to make a difference while traveling.
These volunteer projects range from medical aid, community infrastructure development, social empowerment, and environmental and wildlife conservation. Our goal is to turn one million travelers into one million volunteers, and in doing so, we will bridge cultures, create new friendships, and broker change one person at time.
WHY WE ARE HERE
We are here to provide travelers with a ‘better’ alternative.
WHERE WE CAME FROM
We are from East Africa, and things are done a little differently here. We use words like community, empowerment, and responsibility. It’s a very special place, and everything we do has a little bit of East in it. In practice however, we have a hope that we can utilize travel and make a difference.
WHERE WE ARE
We offer programs in over 50 countries around Africa, and have been featured in dozens of traditional and online publications. The world is learning about Go Volunteer Africa, and they are coming back over and over again.

WHERE WE AIM TO GO
We aspire to be the most diverse, accessible, and customizable community of both voluntourism, and applied learning projects in the world. We aim to create ‘must-do’ holiday alternatives for every generation. Our goal is to be the ‘top-of-mind’ specialists in our field. We will not rest until we have reshaped the tourism industry, and have converted one million travelers into one million volunteers. Lofty goals. Unstoppable drive. We’d love you to be a part of it.
