Become a Volunteers’ Host

Become Volunteers Host

Would you like to promote intercultural learning in your work community in Africa? Become a volunteers’ host and start receiving volunteers from abroad in your projects and community!

The aim of the program is to establish grass-root level connections and deepen understanding between people with different kinds of backgrounds. Volunteers’ contribution to the community development is valuable and often irreplaceable.

All kinds of non-profit organizations and institutions can receive foreign volunteers. Most of the volunteers work in the social or educational field, but any kind of common-good organization can become a volunteers’ host and can partner with Go Volunteer Africa.

The starting point for the partnership is that the organization/project offers meaningful roles and support for the volunteer in the new environment. The volunteers stay in Africa from 2 to 12 weeks. In case your organization cannot offer accommodation, we advise you to look for a host family for the volunteers.

VOLUNTEERS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD 

Foreign volunteers come to Africa from Europe, Australia, Asia, South America and North America. All volunteers are 18 years old or older. In addition to their work input, the volunteers also cheer up everyday life in the organization and often teach and learn new skills, such as languages.

HOSTING A GVA VOLUNTEER

Most of the Go Volunteer Africa volunteers are between 18 and 45 years of age. Volunteers usually arrive throughout the year. The volunteers have paid a participation fee, which will cover their meals and accommodation and ground support.

To receive volunteers, an organization must apply and once approved pay a once off registration fee. If you would like to receive volunteers, it is best to apply at the end of the year.
