If you can spare a month or two, Go Volunteer Africa will find you a volunteer service with projects based in Kenya and Tanzania. Go Volunteer Africa provides early childcare, medical, wildlife conservation, marine conservation, primary and secondary education to needy children, youth mentoring, community outreach and women empowerment.
All of our volunteer projects in Kenya and Tanzania need volunteers who can bring new ideas, work with minimal supervision, and have a positive, self-starting attitude. The partner organizations do not need just young volunteers, but older people with business skills and experience.
We need those who can sort out bookwork and apply for grants. Just as these projects try to help all members of society, we need all ages of volunteers to help the projects function. Basically, you need to decide if you want to live in a town with a bunch of other volunteers or if you want to be more fully immersed and spend your time living and working in the village!
Go Volunteer Africa puts money and skills into the grassroots and underprivileged communities of Kenya and Tanzania. Go Volunteer Africa’s biggest role is to bring external knowledge, skills, know-how and funds to the table to complement, enhance and build upon the existing skills, knowledge and intrinsic motivation, passion and dreams of every individual in Africa.
Volunteer in Kenya & Tanzania
We have been placing and hosting volunteers in Kenya and Tanzania since 2009. Go Volunteer Africa recruits and places foreign volunteers with small community-based projects and schools around Kenya and Tanzania. Through our volunteer placement program, we aim to build the capacities of local projects and raise awareness around the world about the successes and challenges of life in Africa.
Many local projects lack the money and skills to grow themselves. We hope that with our program in place, our projects will overcome some of the more serious challenges they face. These include: lack of money for operations (wages, office space, transport, training courses), lack of business skills (book keeping, marketing, strategy, grant writing), and lack of up-to-date knowledge (Counselling/mentoring skills, English language, HIV/AIDS and life skills information).We offer a safe and family-like environment in which to come to East Africa and give your time. We offer pre-arrival support by answering your questions about Kenya and Tanzania and by finding a project that best fits your skills and interests.
We offer in-country assistance by collecting you from the airport, getting you to your placement, and unravelling some of the more complicated cultural issues you face when entering Kenya and Tanzania for the first time. It is not easy to come to a completely foreign culture on your own. We want to be there to give you encouragement, advice, and support in order for you to be most effective while you are here.
While working with Go Volunteer Africa, volunteers learn about the real situation at the grassroots level in Africa. Life in Africa is tough for everyone, not just HIV/AIDS patients, orphans and refugees. Wages are low, corruption is rampant, and education is not universal. In spite of this, Africans are some of the most welcoming, friendly, and open people in the world.
Volunteers become part of the family, learning about the local culture: how to cook, how to speak the language, how to sit peacefully with their neighbours and talk about life in general. We hope that volunteers take that knowledge home with them, spreading the word about African development issues and culture around the world.
