The volunteers, who will get involved in our winter volunteer projects in Africa, will have the chance to interact directly with the host communities by preparing and coordinating workshops and activities.

As a participant, you will have the opportunity to try different roles and projects, dependent on your interests and skills. The type of work you are involved with will be dependent on your interests, abilities, level of experience as well as your comfort levels. Working hours are normally 4-8 hours a day.

Upon arrival, there is an orientation session for new volunteers to become acquainted with the local culture, language and project work. Further training and supervision may be provided to new volunteers who are interested in tasks for which they lack adequate experience.
