Special needs volunteer program in Africa can include many different aspects depending on the children and adults you get to work with. Serving with the special needs volunteer program in Africa is a highly rewarding and challenging experience at the same time. In Africa children and adults with mental or physical disabilities are often overlooked by the government and the general public and always do not receive the care and support they need.

Go Volunteer Africa’s special needs volunteer program projects range from general caregiving to assisting in therapy and teaching special education lessons, volunteers can use their specific skills and gain valuable experience. Take action, help those with disabilities and volunteer to support people with special needs!

Participants on the Special Needs volunteer program are placed in care centers, slum projects or in a special needs treatment center handling all aspects of the project. Volunteers work as teacher aids, assist with vocational training, provide care and play games to interact with the individuals in their free time.

Special Needs Volunteer Program

Volunteers on this project do not need to have previous experience or training as they are working closely with local staff, although adequately trained volunteers can also occasionally assist with speech and occupational therapies, physiotherapy, social work, orthotics, prosthetics and wheelchair making.

Special Needs Volunteer Program

Volunteers who are specialized in particular areas are encouraged to include these details in their application to assist the local staff in placing them where they will be most effective, however volunteers do need to be flexible and willing to work within other areas as needed.
