Go Volunteer Africa offers community development volunteer work in the Comoros with opportunities focused on poverty reduction, infrastructure development, education, healthcare and conservation work.
Situated in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and the African continent, Comoros is a paradise island. With a population of just 877,000 living on the islands of Ngazidja (Grande Comore), Mwali (Mohéli), Maore (Mayotte) and Nzwani (Anjouan), Comoros offers meaningful volunteer work opportunities dedicated to preservation and conservation work, teaching and healthcare around the islands.
Comoros Sanitation Volunteer Projects:
Go Volunteer Africa local teams in Comoros engage into programs and projects which improve on the sanitation of the island people and this include clearing of drinking wells, building of dry racks and the digging of latrines as well as education of healthy living practices. Join the team and help in improving the sanitation of poor communities in Comoros.
Comoros Teaching Volunteer Opportunities:
The main focus is providing education to hundreds of children in poor communities in Comoros. The island schools provide French, Math, health lessons to children 3yrs-12yrs old. The schools provide not only needed education but opportunities for sports activities, health talks, feeding center and meeting place for the community.
With our Comoros volunteer program we allow you to discover the wonders of this beautiful island, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work. This is a great opportunity to explore life on the islands and schools, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
Teaching experience is not required. You can begin as a teaching assistant and then work in small groups with children in need of extra attention. The objective of this program is to contribute to the academic development of the school in order to provide the best opportunity for the children to receive quality education. Volunteers support the local teachers; encourage students to learn and play and instill pride in their schooling.
Comoros Community Outreaches Volunteer Work:
You will have the opportunity to try different roles and projects, dependent on your interests and skills. These volunteer opportunities do not require specialized skills (although these would be an advantage), and we accept volunteers for both short and long-term placements, all the year round. Volunteers certainly gain an amazing life experience from their participation in our Comoros volunteer placement program. On first arrival, most volunteers sample all the projects before selecting the tasks that suit them best.
You just have to let us know where you want to go and we will take you there and information is available for you. The type of work you are involved with will be dependent on your interests, abilities, level of experience as well as your comfort levels.
One of the advantages of the Community project is that you are not limited to one job role and will have the opportunity to ‘sample’ other roles during your placement. To become involved in another projects simply inform a member of staff who will happily make any necessary arrangements.
